Chance To Get Published

The National Association of Elementary School Principals Foundation (NAESPF) has launched a contest for aspiring children’s book authors. The winning authors will have their books endorsed by the NAESP Foundation and published by Charlesbridge Publishing.

Prospective authors may choose to publish a picture book or a chapter book written for children from 3-16 years of age. Five finalists will be announced in each category and two winners will be announced at the 2011 Annual Convention and receive a contract to publish his/her books.

Judging will be based on content, originality, and age-appropriateness of the manuscript.

DEADLINE: Entries can be submitted until February 15, 2011.  Five finalists will be announced on March 14, 2011.  You will be contacted via email if you are a finalist.  Two winners will be announced April 7, 2011 at NAESP 2011 Annual Convention and receive a contract to publish his/her books.

Download the entry form and mail a copy of your manuscript to:

NAESP Foundation
1615 Duke Street
Alexandria, VA 22314

For more information about the National Book Award Contest, call the NAESP Foundation at 800-386-2377.

Note: The Book of the Year Award Contest is open to anyone who wants to have his/her children’s book published.

Forty-five dollars is a good amount of money to put out, but it is going to a reputable organization with a reputable publisher. 

Good Luck,

Kathy
