National Council of Teachers of English Student Awards
For detailed information about NCTE’s awards program, visit the NCTE website and select “About/Awards/Student Awards”.
WCTE recommends that Wisconsin winners of NCTE’s student awards be recognized each year at events in students’ schools and localities. WCTE recognizes teachers and advisors of student award winners at the WCTE convention based upon information available since the previous WCTE convention.
One of the NCTE student awards is administered locally:
NCTE Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines
