The school literary fair is part of a series of contests across various categories related to poetry, fiction and drama, concluding with the district Literary Fair and awards presented at a ceremony in the spring at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. a contest composed of students competing for the finest literary piece amongst other students in the district. There are a multitude of genres to choose from. 

“I encourage students to try as many genres as possible,” English teacher Paula Rodriguez said. Rodriguez is the contest coordinator for the literary fair.
