The NJ Thespians category is for students grades 9-12 who are active members of a school-based Thespian troupe in the state of New Jersey only. Note that the grade range for this program differs slightly from the regular NJ Young Playwrights Contest and that the deadline for submission to the NJ Thespians category is DECEMBER 1, 2017 (scripts may still be submitted to the NJ Young Playwrights Contest until January 15, 2018).

The NJ Thespians Playwriting Contest has two categories:
Grades 9-10
Grades 11-12

Scripts submitted to the NJ Thespians Playwriting Contest will be automatically entered into the NJ Young Playwrights Contest in the appropriate category based on the grade level you indicate in this form.
