The Project begins with annual invitations to area high school teachers to enter 10-minute scripts, written by their students, for evaluation by an experienced panel of  theatre peers. These judges read the anonymously-submitted plays, write responses for each script, and Circle adds up the scores to determine the top 20 plays. We then send them to Connie Whitt-Lambert, theatre professor at Texas Wesleyan University. Connie and her team will then conduct their own evaluations and find the top eight plays, four being the finalists, and the other four being semi-finalists. In May, a staged reading of the four finalists' plays is presented, followed by an award ceremony where the semi-finalists and finalists will receive trophies and certificates, along with tickets donated from local professional theatres. This year, we have moved the staged reading online.
