The Letters About Literature (LAL) Competition invites students in grades 4 through 12 to write a letter to an author who has influenced their life. All submission must be postmarked by Saturday, Dec. 6.
Each year, LAL awards more than 150 state-level prizes. The program also selects six national winners, each of whom will earn for their community or school library a $10,000 Letters About Literature Reading Promotion Grant. Twelve national honorable mention winners each will earn a $1,000 grant for the community or school library of their choice.
