High school students from across the state of Missouri are invited to showcase their storytelling talents and highlight their hometowns as part of the Missouri 2021 High School Competition. The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2021. 

Missouri 2021, the state’s bicentennial celebration, is an initiative of the State Historical Society of Missouri and its Center for Missouri Studies. Faculty from the University of Missouri are facilitating the high school competition, which challenges students to explore Missouri’s past, present and future by using a variety of storytelling techniques.

Students can opt to submit projects to any or all of three categories — past, present and future. Winners of each category will receive $100 and will have their works presented online and at a public event in August.
