There are no 1A,2A,3A,4A,5A,6A classifications. Competitors are not grouped by grade or skill level. It is a straight-up writing competition and submissions are anonymous until awards are distributed.
Students receive a one hour lecture, interview or presentation then they have two hours to write, edit and submit their entry.
Roughly 100 students competed in this particular writing competition.
