The magazine is published quarterly and submitted work is read not only by editors but also by an advisory board comprised of students between the ages of eight and 16.
The mention of “date” always manages to tickle your stomach and flutter the wings of your heart, doesn’t it?
Each station chooses winners which are then entered in the national contest.
TIME for Kids, a non-fiction weekly news magazine for classrooms, is a child-oriented version of its parent, TIME Magazine.
This annual contest is unique in that it focuses on kids working collaboratively to create a piece of illustrated work in the form of a children’s book.
The 21-29 page book can be fiction or non-fiction and must be created by a group of at least three students.
Like Stone Soup, Creative Kids Magazine is not a contest but a publication written for kids by kids.
Kids can submit everything from stories and songs to editorials and plays.
Not only does this writing contest help kids learn to work together, but it also teaches them about formatting manuscripts for children’s books, as submissions must be formatted according to specific guidelines.
The winning book is published by Scholastic and sold at Scholastic Book Fairs across the country.
