Any Utah junior high or high school student who is registered for the UTA Conference 2018 is eligible to submit a script to the playwriting festival. For full playwriting festival guidelines, consult the Utah Young Playwrights Festival Handout.
Students must be registered for the UTA conference by November 30, 2017 in order to be considered the the Utah Young Playwrights Festival. If they do not register for the conference, their plays will not be read and adjudicated.
Properly submitted scripts are read and adjudicated, and student playwrights are given written feedback from the judges. Outstanding scripts receive staged readings at the conference, and the top playwrights are presented with cash awards.
All scripts must be submitted electronically by December 8, 2017. Questions about the Utah Young Playwright’s Festival can be directed to Wendy Oltmanns.
