This page will be updated for the 2018 conference as materials become available. For your reference, the following is the information from the 2017 Conference.

2017 Playwright Festival


Any Utah junior high or high school student who is registered for the UTA Conference 2017 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 23, 2016 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 November 15, 2016. Questions about the Utah Young Playwright’s Festival can be directed to Mitzi Mecham at Logan High School.
