The Spruce Kids is seeking elementary school and middle school aged writers to express themselves and submit their stories!

The Spruce Kids is a digital teaching platform that focuses on promoting empathy and inclusivity skills from a young age. We want every child to thrive and be able to tap into their fullest potential. Each young sapling deserves to take in all the knowledge they can and use it to enhance both their life and others. Through our stories and curriculum we use psychology and interactive communication to spread our message and make it digestible for any age.

Register by midnight on June 20th and submit the creative writing story to The Spruce Kids by September 7th. Stories will be read by a panel of judges and from there they’ll determine the winners that will then be announced on Friday, October 22nd.

There will be 3 winners from both the elementary level AND the middle school level. Get those ideas churning and write all summer! The grand prize winner(s) will be published by The Spruce Kids and other prizes include cash rewards, certificates and creative writing workshops.

Register your sapling below and keep their minds churning as they become writers through the summer.

Happy writing!
