HungerMountain, the VCFA journal of the arts, is sponsoring the Katherine Paterson Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing:

One overall first place winner receives $1,000 and publication!
Three runners-up receive $100 each. We choose one runner-up from the YA (young adult) entries, one from the Middle Grade entries, and one from the Picture Book or Writing for Young Children entries.

The 2010 contest judge is author Holly Black; the postmark deadline is June 30th, 2010.

Good luck to any members who decide to enter!
