Letters About Literature
Children in grades four through 12 are invited to participate in a national reading-writing contest. To enter, kids must write a personal letter to an author (living or dead, from any genre) explaining how that author's work changed their way of thinking about the world or themselves. Cash awards are given at national and state levels for winners in three groups: grades four through six, grades seven and eight, and grades nine through 12. Visit the website for official rules, participation guidelines, and an entry form. Click here Letters must be postmarked by 12/14.
