Tribal College Journal holds student writing, cover art competitions

The Tribal College Journal (TCJ) is holding its annual student writing and cover art contest. The top three entries in each of the three writing categories, as well as the cover artist, will be awarded prizes and published in the TCJ Student Edition, which is distributed to 18,000 readers.

“Getting work published is not only an honor, it’s also great for resumes and portfolios,” said Ryan Wynne, NWIC public information officer. “I hope our talented students here at NWIC will participate.”

The contest is open to all tribal college students from the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) member schools, which includes Northwest Indian College. Contestants can be Indian or non-Indian.

Creative writing submissions must be received by Feb. 10, 2012. The deadline for cover art is April 13.

Submissions should be proofread and edited. The TCJ prefers instructors submit students’ work, so they have a contact name and email.
