One-Act Play Submissions Accepted Oct. 1-Dec. 1, 2015

Please check back on October 1 to enter your submission.


Playwrights must be currently enrolled in a Colorado high school or home school.

The competition will result in ten semi-finalists and three finalists. The finalists will receive a $250 cash scholarship, a staged reading at the 2016 Colorado New Play Summit and a complimentary pass to any reading or production at the Summit. In addition, each teacher of the top three finalists will receive a $250 gift certificate for books, supplies or other teaching tools for their classrooms. One play will be selected for a full production in the summer by the Education department — written, cast with and produced by teens.
