The New York Times Learning Network is running an editorial writing contest for high school students (aged 16 - 19) until mid-April. NOTE: the NYT contest is open to students as young as 10, but the younger ones can only submit entries through a teacher, so we are limiting this program to students 16 and up, who can submit on their own.


To encourage participation, Nutley Academic Booster Club will offer $15 Barnes & Noble gift cards to the first 50 eligible Nutley students ages 16 - 19 who submit an entry and also email us their proof of submission and their submitted text. Any submission that reaches the finals will receive a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card and any winners would receive a $100 Barnes & Noble gift card!


The Nutley School District serves approximately 4,100 students in Kindergarten through grade 12. The five elementary schools serve students K-6 and include Lincoln School, Radcliffe School, Spring Garden School, Washington School and Yantacaw School. John H. Walker Middle School serves students in grades 7-8 while Nutley High School addresses the needs of students in grades 9-12.
