Young dramatists, take note! Your scripts are wanted—and you may actually earn one of two coveted scholarships for them in Writopia Lab’s 2013 Worldwide Plays Festival and Competition!

If you are a playwright in grades 1-12 with a one-act play you’re proud of, you may submit it for consideration by January 25, 2013. Submissions should be mailed to Writopia Lab, 155 West 81 Street, Suite A, New York, NY 10024.

Worldwide Pants, David Letterman’s production company, will offer a $2,500 scholarship for the funniest play. Playscripts, an independent play publisher,  is sponsoring another $2,500 scholarship for the best script by a U.S. high school junior or senior.

And it gets even better: This pair of plays, plus 4 other top entries will be staged and presented to the public at an off-Broadway theater in New York City in May 2013! To get a sneak preview, take a look at one of last year’s winners below:

Interested? Act quickly: the first 250 entries will receive a critique from one of Writopia’s playwright jurors. Break a leg—and be sure to follow all the guidelines here.
