Calling all writers in grades 4 to 12!
The Canadian Children’s Book Centre’s annual Book Week Writing Contest for Kids and Teens is now open, and the February 1st deadline is fast approaching. The national contest is a much anticipated part of TD Canadian Children’s Book Week.
Young writers are invited to send in a sample of their best writing. Judging is done by noted writers from across Canada and the winner from each grade will receive a $250 gift certificate for the bookstore of his or her choice. Two honourable mentions from each grade category will also receive $50 gift certificates.
All entries must be postmarked by February 1, 2013. The winners will be announced during TD Canadian Children’s Book Week 2013.
