Local winners will be honored at an awards ceremony and receive prizes.

Libraries, schools, home school kids, after school programs, and clubs are all invited to join the competition. Winners will be selected at each grade level as well as special categories including Humor, Illustration, Science Fiction and Kindness. Story entries may be in any language and non-English language stories will be considered as long as an English translation is submitted with the entry and adheres to the accepted word count.
