Now in its 34th Year, the New Jersey Young Playwrights Contest and Festival is open to New Jersey Playwrights, Grades 4-12.

All submissions to the project must be made through the WTNJ website by the posted deadline. If you are a teacher submitting for a class, the submission form will accept multiple entries, including multiple uploads. Classroom teachers who still may want to submit a group of student plays by paper copy should contact the Education office at Writers Theatre to make arrangements.
