National Punctuation Day Celebrates 10th Anniversary with a Teachers' Contest!

National Punctuation Day® celebrates its 10th anniversary on September 24 with a salute to the people who are keeping our language alive — our teachers! So, with our appreciation for all of their efforts, this year's contest is a teachers-only event.

Teachers: In an essay of no more than 250 words, explain your best methods of teaching punctuation and document the results you have achieved.

Entries will be accepted through October 31 at

National Punctuation Day was founded in 2004 to draw attention to the importance of proper punctuation. It's a day for librarians, educators, and parents — people who are interested in teaching and promoting good writing skills to their students and their children. It's also a day to remind business people that they are often judged by how they present themselves.
