'Tales of Quarantine': Initiative challenges students to submit their pandemic stories

The coronavirus pandemic has affected every single person — including students, most of whom have been attending school virtually for the past year.

One local education nonprofit is hosting a nationwide initiative for students to showcase the impact of COVID-19 in their own unique, artistic way.

Students ages 6-18 across the country can participate in "Tales of Quarantine," a competition being held by Mission InspirEd, a high school student-run nonprofit based in Seattle.

Students can submit a piece of original work in three categories — media, visual and writing — and win up to $1,500.

"Tales of Quarantine" begins Monday, Feb. 22, and ends on Sunday, March 21. Visit for more information.
