For Cleveland Metropolitan School District Students
Launched in 1989, our annual A Christmas Carol Writing Contest is a literacy program open to all Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) students in grades six, seven and eight. Every year, students participate by writing original stories, songs and poems inspired by the timeless themes in Dickens’ classic tale. Almost 2,000 students from over 50 CMSD schools submit entries to the contest each season!
