Congratulations to all the playwrights who submitted a play to the NJ Young Playwrights Contest 2009! It takes a substantial amount of work and energy to put your words on paper. And it takes a strong sense of confidence to set those words out into the world. Thank you for sharing these thoughts and stories with us. I can’t wait to begin reading your scripts.

Thanks and congratulations are also owed to all of the teachers, parents, and other supporters of the young playwrights. Your encouragement and assistance throughout this process is invaluable. Thank you for patronage of these young people as they have endeavored to share their insight with us.

What happens next?
The office has been inundated with scripts these past few days and I look forward to receiving many more when the post office reopens tomorrow morning. Over the next two weeks, our office will enter these scripts into our Contest database and begin forming packets of plays that will be read by two theatre artists. I will keep you updated of the Contests progress throughout the next few months. So, stay tuned and in the meantime, have fun!
