About the River Writing Prize
The River Rat Writing Prize seeks to provide a creative outlet and authentic audiences for Huron High School students. We believe that the student work produced at Huron deserves to be celebrated within our school community and with the community at large. We welcome submissions from Huron High School students of all grade levels and in a variety of genres and formats.
The mission of the River Rat Writing Prize is to encourage and foster creative writing within the Huron community by celebrating the exceptional writing of current students.

About the Mischief Arts Prize
Because of Covid, we believe that creative outlets for students are more important than ever. This year’s Literary Magazine is expanding and adding an additional competition: The Mischief Arts Prize. Whether students submit pieces created previously during the pandemic or set out to create new pieces for this competition, we welcome submissions from Huron High School students of all grade levels and in a variety of genres and formats.
The mission of the Mischief Arts Prize is to encourage and foster creative visual and aural arts within the Huron community by celebrating the exceptional creativity of current students.
