STEM Expo 5 is excited to announce a new sponsor and subsequent prize for the First Place winning Science Fiction writer (6-8th Grade level).
The California Writing Project (CWP) is a statewide professional learning network that serves teachers of writing at all grade levels, pre-K through university, and in all subjects. Because writing matters for success in the school and university, in the community and workplace, the CWP has a central mission - to improve student writing and learning by improving the teaching of writing.
The First Place winner for this year's Science Fiction category (6-8th Grade level) will be awarded a scholarship to the YOUNG WRITERS’ CAMPS SUMMER 2015 ($275 value)
Information and registration will be posted in April 2015.
All camps are located on the UC Davis campus.
The Young Writers’ summer programs offer students the time and opportunity to discover their strengths and learn more about the craft of writing. Our camp leaders are fully credentialed teachers, Area 3 Writing Project teacher-consultants, and writers themselves. They will provide the highest quality writing instruction and make it their goal to instill in each student an appreciation, excitement, and enjoyment of writing.
Teachers incorporate structured writing workshop time, flexibility in writing assignments, and daily opportunities to share writing with peers during the Young Writers’ Camp. Through the camps, students discover the conditions and habits needed to do their best writing and grow in their confidence and skill. It is one of the greatest ways to celebrate writing, have fun, and make new friends.
The Young Writers’ Camps are designed for students who love to write and want to challenge themselves as writers. This is not a camp focused on remedial writing instruction. We are also offering this summer a “Writing the College Essay” writing workshop for college applications.
