Check out this year's theme:

Take a Stand

In Year 7, Young Playwrights for Change is looking for plays that Take a Stand! Sometimes in life we see examples of an individual who doesn’t take a stand for an issue or problem. Rather the individual goes along with the status quo and does nothing and the problem continues. What is it like when someone does take a stand? What kind of change may happen in an individual to give them the courage to take a stand? How could a young person make such a discovery? What could that discovery make them do differently? We are asking young people to share their stories about taking a stand.
