contest...anyone who's a teacher or knows kids
- I'd love to see some period stuff in the judging, but anything the kids
want to submit is great. If you're a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle or
teacher, pass this along, please.
Dear Sir or Ma'am,
Please find enclosed information on the EPIC New Voice Contest. This
contest is open to Middle School and High School students. In many ways,
the contest resembles the Haverhill, MA Write Away Contest. As you can
see, there is no entry fee. Prizes include cash, e-readers, gift
certificates for e-books and publication of winning entry in the EPIC
New Voice anthology.
The aim of the contest is to encourage writing and reading in school-age
children and to introduce them to e-books and e-publishing. I hope you
will consider allowing your students to participate this coming year.
EPIC, The Electronically Published Internet Connection, is the Voice of
e-Publishing. It is a professional organization of approximately 450
published authors, editors, publishers and industry professionals.
Established in 1997, EPIC is the premiere professional e-book
association in the world. Our members come from not only the US but from
as far away as New Zealand, Australia, most of Europe and even Asia.
Our other contests, the EPPIE and ARIANA, are the longest-standing and
most-inclusive e-book awards in existence, now in their seventh year.
From that platform, EPIC decided to launch into this unpublished contest
aimed at students.
Information about EPIC and our other awards can be found at

Remember, deadline for this year's contest entries is November 1, 2005.
