Letters About Literature Contest Guidelines
What is Letters About Literature? It's an annual program from the Library of Congress, in partnership with Target Stores. Level I, II and III state winners receive a $50 Target gift card and can direct a $300 grant for children and youth materials to the community library of their choice. Finalists receive a $20 gift card to Schulers Books & Music from the Michigan Center for the Book.
This national reading-writing contest invites readers in grades 4 through 12 to write letters to authors of books that have changed their lives. This program gives students the opportunity to reflect deeply on a book.
Life changing for me? Possibly, Chris Crutcher, Robert Cormier, or Walter Dean Myers.
