The Frisco Public Library is holding a contest for young writers from 1st to 12th grade according to a Dallas Morning News article from March 31st. In it they say:
“The poetry contest does not have residency requirements and is open to all young poets between first and 12th grade. Submissions can include any theme or subject matter, and each participant can submit up to three poems. Each poem, however, must be submitted individually and be accompanied by an entry form with contact information. Poems submitted without an entry form attached will automatically be disqualified.”
Earlier, a Frisco resident, Madhalasa Iyer, was named as one of the recipients of a writing scholarship according to a PRCISION Newswire article from March 17th. In it they say:
“Underwritten by New York Life Foundation, this award provides six scholarships of $1,000 each to students whose work explores personal grief, loss, and bereavement, and exemplifies how the arts can act as a positive outlet to cope with these issues. This year’s recipients are: La’Zavia Joseph, Houston, TX; Madhalasa Iyer, Frisco, TX; Ilhana Kisija, Skokie, IL; Kale Kurtz, Harrisburg, PA; Alena Suleiman, San Jose, CA; and Yuejun Wang, Powell, OH.”
It looks like Frisco has more promising writers and poets on the way to success.
