2011 NFB Writing Contest

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 Website, 
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."
