2012 New Jersey Young Playwrights Contest & Festival

For 29 years, the New Jersey Young Playwrights Contest & Festival (NJYPF) has been deepening the writing experience for young writers by providing detailed feedback from theatre professionals about students' plays. For the 7th year in a row, winning plays will be presented during the New Jersey Young Playwrights Festival, a partnership between Playwrights Theatre and Premiere Stages at Kean University.

Through a series of rounds, a team of readers may select plays from each division to be honored as statewide winners. These plays will receive a staged-reading performance by professional actors during the Festival. Date to be determined. This is certain to be a must-see event!

Plays are accepted in the following divisions:
Elementary (grades 4-6)
Junior High School (grades 7-9)
High School (grades 10-12)

High School play submission deadline - January 14, 2012
