The Florida High School Technical Writing Competition (HWTWC) was launched in 1997 and had a highly successful 16-year run. During this time, high school students in Central Florida won cash awards from the Orlando Chapter totaling $8,325. Many of our winners went on to STC’s International High School Technical Writing Competition, where they garnered another $6,300 in cash awards.

The resources used to establish and sustain this project remain useful today.
