Important Updates for Houston/Harris County 2021

Downtown Houston at night

Essay deadline delayed until FEBRUARY 16, 2021

Due to the ongoing issues some schools are experiencing with alternating between remote and in classroom learning, we have made the decision to accept essays for judging until FEBRUARY 16, 2021.

We do not want any school who wishes their students to participate to feel they cannot because of time and logistic constraints.

For those teachers who use Do the Write Thing as a stand-alone writing assignment and not for judging, we will accept essays through the end of February.

If you have any questions, please contact us at 713-447-4942.
