The National Council of Teachers of English established the program to recognize excellence in student literary magazines nationally. The program is intended as a means of recognition for students, teachers and schools producing excellent literary magazines; as an inducement for improving the quality of such magazines; and as encouragement for all schools to develop literary magazines, seeking excellence in writing and school wide participation in production.
