Kids Write 4 Kids contest now open

Kids Write 4 Kids, the annual creative writing contest held by Ripple Foundation, is now accepting entries. Students in Grades 4–8 are encouraged to submit an original story of fact or fiction, prose or poetry.

Each entry is judged on creativity, originality, and technique. Last year’s winners Tvisha Lakhani and Brynne Storey are among the 12-person judging panel.

Proceeds from book sales on Amazon, Apple Books, Google Play, and Overdrive are donated to the winner’s charity of choice.

The deadline for submissions is March 31, and the winner will be announced in June.
