The “Final Thoughts” competition is an annual contest for the best original piece from a member of the senior class. The senior who submits the best short story, poem or essay will be commemorated on a plaque and on our website. The winning entry will also be submitted to the Burlington Union. This contest will carry our largest prize of the year.
* Seniors may submit as many entries as they wish
* Entries are read and judged anonymously by students
* Winning entries will receive a special mention in that year’s edition of Collab
The deadline for the contest is always the Thursday after midterms
Submit your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org (.doc file preferred – please DO NOT send .pdf files or Google Drive files) or place them in the Submissions Box outside our room. Good Luck!
