The Candy Palace Writing Contest
The Candy Palace program is sponsoring a biennial writing contest and transform the original story of one Orange County child into a published, professionally illustrated children’s book whose full profits will be donated to the Kids Cafe program. The stories will be reviewed and chosen by the program’s board, which includes children’s book authors, editors and illustrators. A selection of stories will also be posted on the website.
The contest is being conducted in partnership with several Orange County schools whose grade 2 through 8 students will be eligible to submit their original stories for consideration.
