Play Writing Contest

WRITE A PLAY! NYC, the New York City School Playwriting Contest, is open to all NYC students. Plays are judged in three categories: elementary, middle, and high school. All entrants receive a Certificate of Merit, a written evaluation of the play and an invitation to the annual Awards Ceremony.


Plays must be submitted by students, not teachers. There are no restrictions on length, style, or subject, but collaborations of more than three writers will NOT be accepted. Screenplays and musicals are not eligible, nor are adaptations. Scripts should be typed and stapled, and pages must be numbered. Scripts must have a cover page with: title of play, playwright’s name, home address (with apartment # and zip code), phone number, school, grade, and date of birth. Submit a copy of your play and keep the original. Scripts will not be returned.

Send your scripts, postmarked on or before March 1st:
