National Annual Awards Competition

 

The hallmark of NSAL is its National Annual Awards Competition, which is held each year. Participants in the competition compete at the local chapter level for a series of monetary awards. First-place winners of the local chapter competitions are sent at the chapter’s expense to the National Competition, which is held each spring during the Society’s annual meeting.

NSAL Young Writers’ Fund


In 2014, NSAL partnered with the Iowa Young Writers’ Studio to sponsor one high school student each year to attend a two-week summer session at the Iowa Young Writers’ Studio in Iowa City, Iowa, home of the University of Iowa.
