Columbia, SC – PalmettoPride’s Children’s Book Contest returns for its fourth year and is now accepting applications. The 2021 contest is open to South Carolina writers of all ages with an original story idea based on the theme, “Litter-Free SC.”
The children’s book contest highlights the mission of PalmettoPride and provides an educational tool for teachers in South Carolina sharing the harmful impacts of litter. After a winning book is selected, PalmettoPride will publish the book and share a copy with every elementary school library in South Carolina.
Cherish Taylor of Irmo Middle School wrote and illustrated last year’s winning entry, Louie’s Park. PalmettoPride, along with help from Representative Chip Huggins and Taylor’s family, surprised her with a copy of the published book at her school.
This year, interested writers can submit their stories based on the following criteria:
The deadline to enter the contest is February 19, 2021. Illustrations are not required for the book, but are a welcome addition. Judging will be based on creativity, content and theme relation. Writers may submit their stories by emailing email@example.com. Winners will be announced March 19, 2021.
