Writing, art contest
The Kansas Author's Club is taking registrations for its 2006 Writing and Artwork Contest for Youth.
Kansas students in grades 1 through 12 may submit one entry in each of five categories. Entrants are grouped according to grade -- with different word limits -- for poetry (any subject), prose (any subject), theme poetry, theme prose and artwork.
This year's theme is "Paint Your Canvas With Words."
Criteria for themed entries include a strong sense of place created by words that convey rich visual detail, in addition to taste, touch, sound and smell about any location in any genre. There is no entry fee. Postmark deadline is June 17, 2006.
The Kansas Author's Club is a statewide organization for anyone interested in writing. Winners will be announced Sept. 29 at the Kansas Author's Club convention in Junction City.
