Is it ok to include all the writing contests I have been involved in?
Answered

I'm going to be a future journalist/ English major and as such, have participated in a number of activities because of it. One of those being a bunch of writing contests. Should I only include the most prestigious ones or... what? What should I do?

Personally I would only include the most prestigious ones. Resumes and applications of any kind, in general, usually should include the best of the best of your work. Plus, people don't really want to read through a ton of papers. I don't really know the quantity of what you should include; I'm guessing it varies. I hope this helps!
