Every year playwrights at SUNY Oswego may enter a competition for best ten-minute play. Winners are selected by a panel of judges. The winning plays are then paired with student directors from the Theatre Program, resulting in several nights of staged readings of the best ten-minute plays. This contest has been held at SUNY Oswego for over twenty years, making it one of the oldest ongoing competitions for undergraduate playwrights in the United States.
