Your chance to participate in a battle of COMIC proportions!
The contest centers around the creation of a special edition of a comic book. Students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their creative talents in an exercise involving core aspects of literacy, including reading and writing.
The contest is open to all students enrolled in the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), Boys Town North Florida, and Massachusetts Department of Youth Services (DYS) programs.
Each state will compete within its regions through Summer 2020, ending with a Clash of the Winners contest across the states. There are multiple chances to vote on your favorites and help guide the creation of a comic book!
