The Drexel University 2014 High School Ten-Page Screenplay Contest Has Been Suspended.

Please check again in September, 2015.

 

Winners of Previous Contests:

Dozens of high school juniors and seniors submitted 10-page screenplays—comedy, fantasy, mystery, history, you name it, we got it. The best of the bunch displayed a firm understanding of how screenwriting differs from other kinds of writing, a good sense of story, and a knack for creating interesting characters.

Here are the top ten screenwriters, and their teachers. (You can find a complete list of past year's winners here)
