In an effort to ensure student success, the Arizona State Board of Education will replace the AIMS Reading, Writing, and Math assessment with AzMERIT beginning spring 2015. As students continue to develop the needed skills to compete globally, Arizona will be ready to assess their preparedness and measure their proficiency. For more information about this new assessment, please see the AZMerits Information page.
The Northern Arizona Playwriting Showcase is looking for the best 10-minute plays written by Arizona high school students to feature in the 2015 showcase August 28, 29 & 30, 2015 in Flagstaff, Arizona!
➢The contest submission is open May 1 –June 15
➢There is NO fee for high school students, but they must identify themselves as high school contestants in their submission e-mail!
➢ Ideally, plays submitted to our contest will be between 7 and 10 pages, with a running time of 8 to 10 minutes. (Note: This does not include character list, character descriptions, or detailed scenic descriptions at the beginning of the play. Those may be submitted on a separate page.)
➢ Plays should be written for no more than 3 actors. Co-authored plays are acceptable. Multiple submissions are also acceptable.
➢ Winning plays will receive a staged reading, but we cannot accommodate elaborate props, so the artistry should reside in the dialogue and action, not the staging.
➢Plays should be received no later than 5 p.m., Tuesday, June 15, 2015.
➢Plays should be e-mailed to email@example.com
➢Plays will be judged anonymously.
