VSA Playwright Discovery Award Program

Winners of the 2013 VSA Playwright Discovery Competition participate in a theater workshop

The VSA Playwright Discovery Competition invites middle and high school students to take a closer look at the world around them, examine how disability affects their lives and the lives of others, and express their views through the art of script writing. Writers may write from their own experience and observations, or create fictional characters and settings. Scripts can be comedies, dramas, or even musicals-be creative! Young writers with and without disabilities are encouraged to submit a script. Entries may be the work of an individual student or a collaboration by a group of students.

VSA has an innovative and Free Resource Guide for Teachers to help guide teachers and students through the playwriting process.
