PIQUA – Each year, the Upper Valley Career Center Learning Resource Center hosts a series of three writing contests – fall, winter and spring – where students can submit their original works of fiction, nonfiction , poetry and multimedia.

Students, faculty and staff then choose their favorites by blind online voting.
