The scores are in, and we’re pleased to announce the winners of our 2017 Young Authors Writing Contest. See below for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each division. Congratulations writers!
There will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize for each grade level (9th, 10th, 11th and 12th). Prizes will be awarded as follows:
- 1st Prize: $100
- 2nd Prize: $75

In addition, winning students will have their work published on the Bay Area Book Festival website and their names listed in the San Francisco Chronicle Program Guide. They also will be invited to read their work at an awards ceremony held at the festival, which will take place in downtown Berkeley on June 3rd and 4th, 2017.
The Young Authors Writing Contest is a great opportunity for students in the Bay Area to practice and showcase their writing abilities. Last year, both the San Francisco Chronicle and Berkeleyside covered the contest, recognizing students’ effort and talent.
