Entries will be accepted through Sept. 4. All entries must be submitted to a librarian and logged in at the information desk. Entries may take any literary form, short story, poem, memoir, essay, play, etc. and will be judged in age categories. Contestants are limited to one entry, which must not exceed three pages (double-spaced), typed in font size 12. Entries that were submitted to schools or have won prizes in other contests are not eligible.
Awards will be given out in the fall at the Palisades Branch Library at a ceremony with gift certificate prizes for first, second and third place winners.
Winning entries will also be dramatically read by professional actors.
