4th Grade Book Writing Contest Organizational Meeting

Central Oregon Writers Guild invites all those interested in the Annual 4th Grade Book Writing Contest to attend the planning and organizational meeting February 10 starting at 6 P.M. at the Redmond Public Library. The Guild needs volunteers for promotion, funding (to cover printing and prizes), to assist students at schools, and judging. You may also help fund the contest with your contribution to the Friends of the Redmond Library-4th Grade Book Writing Contest.

Kathy Duffy, Reference Librarian at the Redmond Public Library, originated and organized the Annual 4th Grade Book Writing Contest for all 4th graders in the Redmond area from 2005-2008. Ms Duffy retired and moved away this past year so there is no contest scheduled for the current school year.

However, the Library has asked Central Oregon Writers Guild to take the lead in conducting this popular contest for the 2010-2011 school year The Guild has been an active partner in the past with the Redmond Library, the Friends of the Redmond Library, the Redmond Rotary, and the High Desert Society of the Arts and will direct the communications and organization of the contest. The Redmond Public Library will continue to host a reception for the contest winners and catalog the winner and runner-up books.
