Holland & Knight Young Native Writers Essay Contest

The Young Native Writers Essay Contest is a writing contest for Native American high school students and is designed to encourage young Native Americans to write about the progress their tribal communities have made and how their tribal communities can keep moving forward.


This year, students who participate will be asked to describe a recent action undertaken by the tribal community to which they belong that gives them a sense of hope, progress and promise. In addition to describing the tribal program, law or policy, essayists will be asked to explain what additional steps they would take (if they were a tribal leader) to keep their community moving forward.

The contest is designed to encourage young Native American writers to explore their heritage while becoming positive forces in their communities. It is open to Native American high school students from all tribal communities throughout the United States.

Students interested in participating can visit the Holland & Knight Young Native Writers Essay Contest website for official contest rules and to view past winning essays. All essays must be submitted electronically by the entry deadline through the contest website.
