Cheerios Story Writing Contest

Attention writers!! The 4th Annual Cheerios New Author Contest is open. "Spoonful of Stories" entries are due July 15, 2010. It is a free contest open to any author (18+) who has never been published. Submitted stories should have 500-word max, and target age is 3-8.

The grand prize is $5,000 from Cheerios and the winner's book gets published by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing. There are also runner-up prizes. Be sure to read the rules, especially eligibility requirements.

This contest is a great opportunity for aspiring writers since there is no designated theme, so we can be super creative!! I found out about this contest through my SCBWI newsletter. Good luck, writers!
