Ripple Foundation, a national youth education charity has launched its annual, Kids Write 4 Kids (KW4K) contest ― a creative writing challenge for kids across Canada.
Budding young authors in grades 4 to 8 across the country are encouraged to submit their literary creations by March 31, 2022, for a chance of becoming a published author before reaching high school.
All submissions are judged by a panel of authors, editors and faces from the publishing world, as well as previous contest winners. Winning books will be published in paperback and ebook editions.
This the only contest of its kind in Canada, and 100% of proceeds from book sales will be donated to a charity of the winners' choice. This year marks the 10th anniversary for the foundation's annual event.
Children in grades 4 to 8 across Canada can submit their entries from now until Thursday, March 31, 2022 at www.ripplefoundation.ca/kids-write-4-kids/contest.
