Cheerios Writing Contest; Children’s Author’s Americans Only

Cheerios Cereal is holding a contest for children’s fiction authors. Submit your original, unpublished children’s story targeted at children ages 3 to 8 for a chance at the grand prize of $5000 cash and a possible publishing contract from Simon & Schuster. Two first prizes of $1000 will also be awarded. Deadline to enter is July 15. Read all about it here

I don’t know why a cereal company would do this, but I’m not complaining. Hooking up kids with books is through food is a great idea. I grew up reading the backs of cereal boxes. – Trix are for Kids…Put a Tiger in Your Tank

I loved those taglines, but how much more satisfying would it have been to have had the opportunity to read a serialized (pun intended) version of Charlotte’s Web!

    Is this where I enter my manuscript for the children’s literature contest for Cheerios?
