Missouri S&T, in partnership with Arts Rolla, has extended its deadline to Wednesday, Oct. 1, for its 150th Anniversary Poetry and Writing Contest. Winning entries will be included in the university’s time capsule this fall.

The free literary competition is open to all Missouri residents ages 12 and older, including S&T alumni and out-of-state and international students who are enrolled at S&T. Original works of poetry and flash fiction must be family-friendly compositions written by the submitting author. All works should be about S&T in some way. For example, authors may choose to write in the voice of a Miner, write about a single memory of their time at S&T that has inspired them, or write about what they hope to see accomplished in the next 150 years for S&T and the world.

Submissions will be judged on relevance to the theme, judge’s impression, technique, effectiveness, style and creativity. Each person may enter up to two submissions. All submissions must be previously unpublished work. For entry information, please visit 150.mst.edu/writing-contest or contact Arts Rolla at rtsrolla@gmail.com or 573-364-5539.
