 Hi Arielle,

Could you please send the below to all your K-12 student, teacher, and
parent contacts?  I'd really appreciate it.  The deadline for entries
is quickly approaching.



Last chance to enter the 2011 Youth Writing Contest!

The annual youth writing contest sponsored by the Writers' Division of
the NFB, opened January 1st and will close April 1st.

Do some writing, win prizes, get published!

The youth contests are to promote Braille literacy and all poetry and
fiction entries are required to be submitted in Braille. The age
groups are divided into three categories: first through sixth grades,
seventh and eighth grades, and ninth through twelfth grades.

Prizes for contest winners range up to $25!

All contest winners will be announced at the Writers' Division
business meeting during the NFB national convention to be held in
Orlando, Florida, the first week of July, 2011. In addition, shortly
after convention, a list of winners will appear on the Writers'
Division Website, www.nfb-writers-division.org. First, second, and
third place winners in each category may be published in the Writers'
Division magazine, "Slate & Style."

For additional contest details and submission guidelines, go to the
Writers' Division Website, www.nfb-writers-division.org.
