Every year the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum launches a writing competition that offers students a creative and interactive way to learn more about U.S. and Connecticut history and the arts, while providing an opportunity for students to hone their writing skills that they are learning and developing in class.

LMMM has partnered with the Ernest Hemingway name and trademark to give participants of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum/Ernest Hemingway/Young Writers’ Competition inspiration, increased educational productivity, and opportunities that may advance their academic careers.

Third and eighth grade students who join the writing competition are asked to write on a theme, corresponding to the season’s current exhibit. The competition culminates with a ceremony with prizes awarded to the top three students in third and eighth grade.
