About the Contest
The Cancer Unwrapped Teen Writing Contest is an annual event sponsored by Gilda’s Club Seattle. This essay writing contest is for any teen in grades 9 through 12, in Alaska and Washington State, who has been touched by cancer either through a personal diagnosis or that of a family member or friend. We want to hear your story! Have you survived cancer? Have you watched as a family member dealt with cancer? What was it like to watch someone your age go through cancer?
Dealing with cancer can unleash a storm of emotions, questions, and unexpected discoveries. We want to hear about your experience. We are looking for honest essays, with an authentic ability to move readers. Write the story you want to tell, not the one you think we want to hear.
Essays should be at least 500 words, but no more than 2000 words long. Please submit them on our website by clicking the link below. Finalist essays are read by a panel of celebrity judges. Prize winners will be chosen from the finalist group.
For more information call the Clubhouse at 206-709-1400, toll-free 1-866-200-2383 or email Liz Lange at firstname.lastname@example.org.
