The Huntsville Literary Association is pleased to announce the winners in all categories of this year's Young Writers Contest. The contest winners are listed in Young Writers Winners. This listing shows winners in all categories, including the Dorothy Diemer Hendry award winners previously announced.
The stated mission of the Huntsville Literary Association is "to promote and encourage the understanding, appreciation, and study of all forms of literature; to publish a literary magazine; and to sponsor activities that further these purposes. HLA publishes the literary magazine POEM twice a year. The Young Writers Contest is a major activity that encourages students to write poems and short stories and offers students public recognition, publication, and cash rewards."
This mission is carried out under the guidance of volunteer officers and board members, who are elected at the Annual Meeting. Funding for programs comes largely from annual membership dues and grants. Officers and Board members are listed below.
