How did an author’s work change your view of the world? Or even of yourself?
Wyoming students in grades 4-12 are invited to read, be inspired, and write back to the author (living or dead) of a book that changed their lives. Sponsored by Wyoming Humanities, the 2022 Wyoming Letters About Literature Contest is accepting submissions.
The submission deadline has been extended until March 4.
Complete information including the submission form can be found at thinkwy.org and searching “Letters About Literature.”
The program promotes the excitement and value of reading and writing. Entries will be judged at the state level in three age categories: grades 4-6, grades 7-8, and grades 9-12. Winners will receive an Amazon gift card worth $150 for first place, $100 for second, or $50 for third.
This contest is presented as part of the Wyoming Center for the Book, now housed with Wyoming Humanities.
Guidelines and entry forms may also be found by contacting Lucas Fralick at email@example.com or (307) 721-9243.
