Identity Contest

September 1st - September 30th

Calling all writers, poets, artists, and young creatives! HiStory Retold is a group of students aiming to diversify national curriculum, and we need your help. We call on you to share a piece using any creative medium - writing, visual, song, etc. - that in some way communicates and/or reflects your self-perception of your identity. This prompt is purposefully vague to allow for utmost creativity. The first place winner will receive $100 and an offer for a position on HiStory Retold's National Student Leadership Board. 

Email your submission directly to by September 30th, midnight Central time.

  • Winners will be announced by October 15th and winners will be compensated by no later than October 24th.
