Middle School Playwriting Competition

NYCCT is proud to host an annual playwriting competition for the city’s most talented up-and-coming writers: middle school students.

Calling All Young Playwrights!

NYCCT’s Middle School Playwriting competition invites middle school students from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to submit short plays based on a chosen theme. 

Five (5) middle school playwrights are chosen as grand prize winners and receive a staged reading of their play, performed by professional actors. 


We are no longer accepting submissions for our 2021-22 Competition.
