COLUMBIA -- PalmettoPride, the state's anti-litter and beautification organization, is hosting an inaugural children’s book contest. The contest is open to all adults and children across South Carolina.
PalmettoPride’s mission is to eradicate litter and promote beautification in the state using four key methods. Changing the behavior of those who litter begins with education.
Interested writers can submit an “Anti-Litter”-themed story for consideration, with an application to follow. The grand prize for this contest is a real published book that will be donated to schools, libraries, and also available for purchase from PalmettoPride.
Criteria to enter contest:
• The writer must live in South Carolina.
• The writer must have an original story about littering.
• The story must feature Louie the Lion, PalmettoPride’s mascot.
• The book must not be more than 30 pages.
This is an adult- and children-friendly contest; anyone can submit an idea. Illustrations are not required for the book, but they are encouraged. To submit your “Anti-Litter” book idea, contact Jessica at Jalbert@palmettopride.org or call 803-758-6034.
