The Will McDonough Writing Contest
is a great local writing contest centered around sports and sportsmanship, sponsored by the Boston Globe and TD Garden. Place finishers are honored at a Celtics game with a really nice luncheon before a game. They have different categories and in the past, even students who don’t consider themselves “sports enthusiasts” have won based on an original take defining sportsmanship. I have found it to be especially effective in capturing the interest of the otherwise reluctant writer who happens to love sports.
