The contest promotes Canadian literature while creating a greater awareness of literacy.
Winners will be announced on October 5 at a ceremony at Sinclair Laird School in Montreal, when well-known Canadian author Marie-Louise Gay will be the special guest.
All winners will receive a $75 gift certificate at Babar Books, and their school libraries will receive $500 gift certificates also from Babar.
