Students who enter their work to the Young Spurs contest have a chance to win complimentary registration and accommodations to the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference in Grapevine, Texas. A complimentary registration and accommodations also will be awarded to each student's teacher/mentor. A small travel stipend may be available. Young Spurs will also attend a half-day workshop with award-winning author Skip Hollandsworth when they critique their winning entries. They will spend the rest of the weekend attending lectures and panel discussions centered around our central conference theme.
