The Noorda Center is sponsoring the second annual Old Miner’s Children’s Playwriting Contest. Submission deadline is Wednesday, February 3. Plays must be appropriate for performance for or by children 12 years old and younger. The winner of the national division (playwrights living in the continental United States) will receive $1000 and lodging, airfare, and per diem for a one-week development process culminating in a staged reading by UVU student actors in April 2015; dates to be arranged between the writer and the Noorda Center upon selection. The winner in the Utah college division will receive $250, a preliminary reading, and a final reading a week later and will participate in the development of the national winner’s script. There is also a $500 “Strike It Rich” prize available for a winning play that is based on the lives of real children.
