VSA Playwright Discovery Competition Call for Scripts

The VSA Playwright Discovery Competition invites middle and high school students to take a closer look at the world around them, examine how disability affects their lives and the lives of others, and express their views through the art of scriptwriting. Writers may write from their own experience and observations, or create fictional characters and settings. Scripts can be comedies, dramas, or even musicals—be creative! Young writers with and without disabilities are encouraged to submit a script. Entries may be the work of an individual student or a collaboration by a group of students. The competition has two divisions: grades 6-8 and grades 9-12. A distinguished jury of theater professionals selects one winner from each division. The Division 1 winner will receive a cash prize for his/her school. The Division 2 winner will receive a cash prize for his/herself and school.

The 2013 Call for Scripts is now open! Submissions will be accepted online through the link below. All applications must be submitted by June 1, 2013.
