Spread the word about OWAA’s youth writing and photography contests

Do you know a high school junior, senior or college student? Or do you know an educator that works with these young scholars? 

Help us spread the word about our Norm Strung Youth Writing Awards and OWAA Student Photo Contest.

Through the Norm Strung Youth Writing Awards and the OWAA Student Photo Contest, OWAA rewards budding North
American writers and photographers who capture the outdoors.

Cash prizes are awarded to first-, second-, and third-place winners in both categories, split over two age
groups (high school seniors and juniors and college students).

Entries must have been created during 2022. Entries are judged by outdoor media professionals and winners are announced in May. Prizes for all categories are awarded as such:

1st – $200
2nd – $100
3rd – $50

Each winner will receive a yearlong OWAA Student Membership ($25 value), have their name included in a nationally distributed press release and have their story/photo included in OWAA’s magazine Outdoors Unlimited. It’s a great step toward a possible future career as an outdoor storyteller!
