Volunteer to Review for NCTE's Student Writing Awards - NCTE

Each year hundreds of volunteers ensure that students across the country are recognized for their exceptional writing. They do this by reviewing more than 1,000 submissions across three different student writing awards:

We are are currently seeking judges for the Recognizing Excellence in Art and Literary Magazines (REALM) program though we continue to seek volunteers for the other programs as well. If you would like to participate in REALM, please fill out the form below. We will reach out to judges in July with next steps. 

  • If you sign up to review for these awards, please be sure that you are available during the review window. All reviews take place via an online database. Completion of reviews within that window is critical to the success of these programs. Our volunteers make these awards possible!
