What would you do if you were trapped with strangers in your school?
In 1200 words or fewer, write a story or poem about people at a school or college who get trapped together. The reason they’re trapped is up to you. How long they’re trapped is up to you. Who’s trapped is up to you (“a jock, a rebel, a beauty, a recluse”…if you need a little inspiration, feel free to ask John Hughes.)
This contest is inspired by Trapped by Michael Northrop (Scholastic), which is about 7 students who get trapped in their high school during a blizzard. Michael Northrop will be judging the contest.
