The Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions (CAFE) is on the hunt for writers interested in entering the Youth Inspired! Children’s Book Competition for young Canadians ages 7 to 30 years old. The competition involves writing children’s books about Canadian agriculture. The deadline for submissions is Sept.27. Winners and runners up will receive a cash prize and have their books published by CAFE. “There are not a lot of books out there on the subject,” explained CAFE Executive Director Christina Franc. “This is for kids, by kids,” she said, explaining the goal of the competition is two-fold: to support young writers, and to highlight Canadian agriculture and educate young readers. The competition is divided into two different age groups, youth 7-12 years old, and writers between 13-30 years old. See full story in the Wednesday, Sept. 11 edition of The Record.
