#winwithWILLOWS Skype Contest 2020

Hello Willow readers! We have some exciting news to share! Once again, the Willow Awards has teamed up with Snow and Diamond finalist author Colleen Nelson to provide you with the chance to win a Skype visit with her! Because she has two books that are Willow finalists this year, she is offering to host two skype sessions!

The #winwithWILLOWS contest opens on December 3, 2020 and all you have to do to enter is take a photo of your Willow readers reading Harvey Comes Home or Sadia. Tag @WillowAwards and the author with the hashtag #winwithWILLOWS and you are entered! Contest closes on January 31, 2021 and winners will be notified in the first week of February via instant message.

And Author Colleen Nelson


The #winwithWILLOWS Contest (the “Contest”) is open to individual legal residents of the province of Saskatchewan who, at the time of entry, are 18 years of age or older who are entering on behalf of youth readers in their school or library community. Officers of SYRCA as well as such officers’ immediate family (father/mother, brother/sister, son/daughter) or persons living under the same roof are not eligible to win this Contest.

There is a limit of one entry per person with readers in grade 4 and up. More than one teacher is welcome to tweet from individual schools. Entries received from anyone in excess of the stated limitation will be void. No purchase required to enter.


The Contest is sponsored by the Saskatchewan Young Reader’s Choice Awards – The Willow Awards Inc. (the “Sponsor”).

Agreement to Official Rules:

Participation in the Contest constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these official rules and the decision of the Sponsor, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent on being compliant with these official rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein.

Contest period:

Contest opens on December 3, 2020 at 12:00pm (CST) and runs until January 31, 2021 at 12:00am (CST) (The “Contest Period”).  All entries received after January 31 at 12:00am (CST) will be void.

Prize Draw:

Winners will be chosen by random draw. Winners will be notified in the first week of February by direct message via Twitter. The Sponsor reserves the right to publish the winner’s first and last name and, where applicable, the name of the school or library.

No prize substitutes, assignments or transfers. No cash equivalent. The odds of being selected will depend on the number of submissions received.

Grand Prize:

Win a 30 minute question and answer style Skype visit with Colleen Nelson. Approximate retail value of $250.

No guarantee of Skype visit if scheduling prevents it. Colleen Nelson will make reasonable efforts to find a mutually agreed upon time for the winning school or library and herself for the Skype visit. No guarantee is made that a mutually agreed upon time will be chosen, and Colleen Nelson will not be able to make a Skype visit if a mutually agreed upon time is not chosen.

The Saskatchewan Young Reader’s Choice Awards and Colleen Nelson reserve the right to change these rules at any time without notice.

Thank you to MYRCA and Colleen Nelson for this wonderful idea!
