‘Letters About Literature’ contest nears submission deadline

(Wyoming) – Students in grades 4-12 have less than two weeks left to enter the Wyoming Letters About Literature contest! The postmark deadline is Saturday, January 9, 2021. With school out for the holidays, this is a good time for teens and tweens to write a heartfelt letter to their favorite author for the chance to win an Amazon gift card.

Wyoming Letters About Literature asks students to reflect on a book or other work that has affected them and to write to the author — living or dead — about how that book changed their life or outlook. Letters will be judged in three levels: grades 4-6, grades 7-8, and grades 9-12. In each level, Amazon gift cards will be awarded in the amount of $150 for first place, $100 for second place, and $50 for third place.

Learn more about how to enter the contest at library.wyo.gov/letters.
