AMBER BROWN GRANT - through SCBWI
The SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) Carolinas Chapter created a grant in honor of beloved author Paula Danziger, who passed away in 2004, as a way of connecting children to reading through their favorite authors and illustrators.
The Amber Brown Grant is available to any school with an interest in having a guest author or illustrator, especially those schools with low funding that might not otherwise have this opportunity.
The awarded school will receive an expense paid, full day visit with a respected author or illustrator, as well as a $250 stipend towards books. The runner-up will receive $250 worth of books.
The deadline is March 1st, 2011. More details, as well as the application can be found on the following website: www.scbwi.org/Pages.aspx/Amber-Brown-Grant
