Scholastic’sKids 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.
