Calling all young wordsmiths

The Friends of the Buda Library is holding its annual Summer Contest for Young Writers. The contest is open to all writers between the ages of 8 to 17. The competition will be split into the ages 8-12 division and a 13-17 group. Stories are limited to 500 words or less and only one entry per person.

The 8-12 group writing prompt is “The Astronaut looked out the window of his spaceship to see…,” while the 13-17 age group prompt is “Gazing up at the moon, one cold, and dark evening, I thought to myself…”

Stories are due July 2 and must be submitted to the Buda Library. No email submissions are accepted. More information and a full list of the rules can be found online at
