Waldman International Arts and Writing Competition

Waldman International 2022-2023

The Waldman International Arts and Writing Competition is back!

We have continued to implement the three-round judging format that began last year, and will also be using the same theme, Resistance and Resilience. There have been some slight changes made to the submission schedule, format, and number of winners. For full contest instructions, visit: Waldman Instruction Booklet and see the Waldman Teacher Toolkit for resources to bring this contest to your classroom.
