The 26th annual contest to find great writers in our community has begun at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library.
The deadline for entries is March 31. Each competitor may submit up to two entries in whatever combination of fiction and/or nonfiction they choose.
Entries will be judged in age groups 6-8, 9-11, 12-14, 15-18, and 19-plus by professional writers, editors, and educators. Winning entries will receive cash awards in each category and age group, $100 for first, $50 for second, and $25 for third. Professionally bound volumes containing all entries in the competition will be placed in the library collection.
Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.
