The writing contests vary in requirements and prizes. Two Vermont contests are the Mountain Review and the George F. Edmunds Memorial writing contest. Works accepted by the Mountain Review appear in the annual publication of all genres of Vermont students' writing. One of the oldest writing contests, that in memory of Vermont's great Senator George F. Edmunds, has been sponsored since 1927. The topics of the essays, poems, or one-act plays must be in some way related to Vermont. There are also several national writing contests. The '82-'83 National Youth Writing Competition awards prizes of up to one hundred dollars cash for poetry and short stories. The Scholastic Writing Awards has several divisioos including , poetry, reviews, humor, dramatic scripts and original songs. Prizes for these are cash, typewriters, Paper Mate products, and scholarships. Some other contests are very specialized in the type of writing requested. Entries to the National Haiku contest must be haiku poetry. Haiku is a well defined verse form of Japanese poetry which con- sists of three lines of five, seven, and five syllables respectively. It usually conveys an emotion evoked by a moment in nature and is often linked to a season. The five winning students of this contest will travel to Japan with their English teachers. For the Gandhi contest, participants write an essay on a given topic about the film Gandhi, which will be released by Columbia Pictures in January.
