At right, you see the teacher-winning digital photograph from our 2009 contest. It was taken by teacher Christina Rhodes. Click on it to see it larger.
If you use this photo in class as a writing prompt, and then have a student like what they're writing so much that they take their writing through the writing process, we want to see their published stories posted here!
No rough drafts please. We're looking for polished writing inspired by this photograph! Final drafts of stories can be pasted or attached in the "Reply to This" box below.
Very Important: Teachers, please only share your students' first name and grade level with us when you post the writing on their behalf. Do not post last names or school names, or the posts will be deleted.
Twenty-five Teachers every semester will win a free classroom resource! Each semester, we choose 25 new students to publish at our online lessons directly at the world-famous WritingFix website. To have your students' writing considered, it can be posted below in the box underneath this posting. In November and May, we will select the 25 students whose writing impressed us the most, and if your student(s) is selected, you will be asked to choose from any of the NNWP Print Publications (http://www.unr.edu/educ/nnwp/publications.html) for us to send to your classroom.
Help us celebrate your writers.

My luscious hair,
I love the way it blows in the air.
But what I saw last night
gave me quite a fright.
I had lice!
And now my hair that was so nice
had to pay a price.

I arrive at the big white church. Then the limo arrives at the church. I walk in the church and sit down. The bride’s maids are in the corner in pretty dresses. I see the groom in the front. Loud music plays the bride walks slowly down the red fluffy carpet. The flower girl follows the bride throwing flowers. The announcer starts to speak loudly. Now I go to the reception. The music guy is sitting behind the desk. I smell food I look over and see a buffet and in the buffet is stuff like chicken and meat. I look on the dance floor and see the flower dancing to music. We got home at one thirty I was exhausted. The lady who did the little girls hair was there to. Everyone had a great time. By the way the girl’s mom got married. It was so fun. The bad thing was I had a headache. I was so tired I slept in my suit. The next day my friend asked if I could play but I said no because my feet hurt. When I woke up I feel back asleep everyone else fell back asleep to. The second time I woke up at three o’clock everyone else woke up at three thirty.
