It's time to get inventive!
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a picture book manuscript featuring a kid inventor.
Your story should include at least one child inventor, at least one invention, and of course, have a beginning, middle, and end. When you've written no more than 750 words, polish it up, holler, "Eureka!" and submit it!

Free Online Workshop
All entrants are invited to a free instructional online workshop with our esteemed judge and the Director of the Institute of Children's Literature and Institute for Writers.
Winning entries will be workshopped by our judge to help writers understand what worked and what could be improved to make it submission-ready.
Submissions will be judged on clarity, originality, potential in the market, appropriateness for the age range, and your ability to match standard manuscript format (double spacing, clear contact information, no creative use of fonts).
The winning entries in this Kid Inventor Picture Book Contest will be announced at a live online workshop within 60 days after the contest closes. All contest entrants will notified of the event details by email and be invited free of charge. (Non-entrants may attend for a nominal fee of $7.)
This is a great opportunity to build your writing and submitting skills!
