Hi everyone! This contest information was sent to me, and I wanted to share it with you in case anyone is interested in entering! 
Writer's Resource is a publishing company that works with adults to publish books. This spring, Writer's Resource is announcing the 1st Annual Young Author Children's Book Contest which invites high school students to win a chance to get a book published.
Writer's Resource has come up with a cool opportunity. The winning author will get their book published and win a paperback copy of the book. They will also get their book set up for sale on and other online retailers in paperback and eBook format (Kindle, Nook, etc). The winning author will receive any and ALL royalties - 100%.
The topic of the contest is for students in 9th - 12th grade to make a children's book, complete with original illustrations. Stories should be 50-350 words.  I know we have some talented teenagers out there!
Submissions are due 5/31/13.
