As an Event Staffer, then as a climbing coach, and now as the Youth Programs Coordinator at PG Belmont I have met so many inspiring young climbers during our youth programs!

These young climbers constantly remind me to live in the present, and they inspire me to climb better. Now, the most appropriate thank-you I can imagine is to hand them microphones so we can all hear what they have to say.

Please contact me with any questions, comments, submissions, or sponsor inquiries.

Good luck, and Climb On!

WANTED: YOUNG AUTHORS

REWARDS: PRIZES AND GLORY 

Planet Granite’s First Ever…

Essay, Short Story, and Poetry Contest

For young rock climbers

to share their stories

 —–

I am excited to announce the launch of Planet Granite’s first ever Youth Writing Contest!

*This contest is open to anyone ages 6-18 who has climbed at Planet Granite, regardless of experience or ability level.*
Writing Contest Blog Picture
Each month Planet Granite climbing teams, after-school programs, birthday parties, and other events attract hundreds of young climbers to our walls. Some of these young people are first-time climbers and some are nationally ranked in their age divisions.

If you or someone you know is between the ages of 6 and 18, has climbed at Planet Granite, and has a story to tell, then WE WANT TO HEAR IT!

You can write about a climbing challenge you have faced, a goal you have reached, friends you have made, or you can even create a fictional story about climbing.

Submit your story to me via email BEFORE NOVEMBER 24TH, and in December we will post all entries anonymously so PG members can vote for their favorites!

All entries are welcome, and winners from each age category will receive PRIZES!

Sponsors of Youth Contest

Get psyched for awesome PRIZES from these generous sponsors!

So, download the CONTEST RULES, find an inspiring topic, and start writing!
