Dear NFB Listers – here is a reminder
RE: 2011 NFB Writing Contest is Coming Soon!

The annual youth and adult writing contests 
sponsored by the Writers’ Division of the NFB, 
will open January 1st and close April 1st.

Adult contests, poetry, fiction and non-fiction, 
are open to all entrants eighteen years and over.

The youth contests are all about Braille and all 
poetry and fiction entries are required to be 
submitted in Braille. The age groups are divided 
into three categories: first through sixth 
grades, seventh and eighth grades, and ninth through twelfth grades.

Prizes for contest winners range up to $100 for 
adult categories and up to $25 for youth categories.

All contest winners will be announced at the 
Writers’ Division business meeting during the NFB 
national convention to be held in Orlando, 
Florida, the first week of July, 2011. In 
addition, shortly after convention, a list of 
winners will appear on the Writers’ Division 
First, second, and third place winners in each 
category will appear in the summer and fall 
issues of the Writers’ Division magazine, “Slate and Style.”

guidelines, go to the Writers’ Division Website,
