|The late author Paula Danziger|
My post-conference post today is to ask you to spread the work that...
the Amber Brown Grand applicaton deadline
has been extended to March 1st, 2011!
The grant, named after a beloved character created by author Paula Danziger, brings a guest author to a school that cannot normally afford to do so.
Here's information on the grant from SCBWI.org:
One school will be rewarded with an all expense paid, full day visit by a well respected children’s author or illustrator. The chosen school will also receive a $250 stipend to assist in creating this memorable event to celebrate reading, learning, and children’s literature and $250 worth of books by the visiting author. Additionally, one runner up school will be selected and rewarded with books valued at $250.
If you know of a school that would qualify, please send them here for the application.
