Scholastic’s “Kids Are Authors” Contest offers students the exciting opportunity to become published authors.
Under the guidance of a project coordinator, children work in teams of three or more to write and illustrate their own book – the creative process of working in teams helps provide a natural environment to practice editing, teamwork, and the communication skills necessary for future success.
Two grand-prize winning books will be published in each of these categories: Fiction and Nonfiction.
The winning books will be published by Scholastic and sold at Book Fairs throughout the country.
