We can’t wait to celebrate your writing! Entries will be judged by Operation Literacy with support from local university partnerships. The entry deadline is March 31st and one winner from each category will be announced on Monday, April 20, 2024. Each winner will receive a mega book bundle plus lunch with #1 New York Times bestselling author, Jennifer A. Nielsen, the Utah Ambassador for Young People’s Literature.
