Submission Guidelines for
Student Written Works

To be eligible for the participation in the regional festival and/or any of the awards, a playwright must:


  • Be a student at a university or college within Region VIII

    • Undergraduate student must carry a minimum of 6 semester hours (or equivalent quarter hours)

    • Graduate student must carry 3 semester hours (or equivalent quarter hours)

    •  Undergraduate, graduate, and continuing part-time student playwrights must be matriculating, degree-seeking students.

    • Students pursuing degrees on-line are also eligible provided they meet these same enrollment guidelines.

  • Attend a school that has entered at least one Associate and Participating Production


A student that meets these eligibility requirements may enter 2 ten-minute plays, 2 one-act plays, and 2 full-length plays for the festival and/or Michael Kanin awards.

You may still submit your play if you are a student from a school without an Associate or Participating entry in the current year’s festival. However, a $10.00 “script handling” fee is required.
