Willow Awards 20th Anniversary Author Contest

The Willow Awards is celebrating 20 years of promoting Canadian literature to children and youth across the province! To help commemorate this special milestone, there will be two contests running throughout the coming school year. The Willow Awards 20th Anniversary Author Contest is one of these.

The Willow Awards has teamed up with a number of 2021 Shining, Diamond and Snow author finalists to provide you with the chance to win a virtual visit or reading with one of the featured authors.

The Contest opens at the start of each month and closes at the end of each month for getting entries in for the author of the month.
