This year’s theme was “What’s Old Is New,” to honor the centennial of this daring and revolutionary couple’s first meeting in Montgomery, Alabama. The Fitzgeralds’ literary and artistic works from the 1920s and 1930s are still regarded as groundbreaking, and The Fitzgerald Museum is pleased to honor these young writers as daring and revolutionary writers of their generation.
The contest, which is open to high school students and college undergraduates, received submissions from around the United States and from overseas. Our four honorees attend schools in Indiana, Virginia, Massachusetts, and Malaysia. The three grade-level winners will receive a monetary prize, and all four will have their winning works published on the Fitzgerald Museum’s website.
