Composing Contest Winners: 2016 National Book Celebration



Winners of 2 contents for kids about books and literature– “Letters About Literature” and “A Book That Shaped Me”– are honored at the 2016 Library of Congress Book Festival in Washington, D.C.

Three nationwide winners in the Library’s Letters About Literature essay contest will read their letters to the authors they composed to. Letters About Literature is a nationwide reading and composing program that asks youths in grades 4 through 12 to compose to an author about how his/her book impacted their lives. More than 50,000 young readers from throughout the nation took part in this year’s Letters About Literature effort, a reading promo program of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. The 2015-2016 Letters About Literature contest is enabled by a generous grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, with extra assistance from presents to the Center for the Book.

” A Book That Shaped Me” is a summer season composing contest that motivates increasing 6th and 5th graders to review a book that has actually had an individual influence on their lives. The contest is administered through regional town library systems in the Mid-Atlantic area. Leading winners will read their essays and be honored throughout this unique program.
