Library of Congress Annual Letters About Literature Contest

The USPS LINK has an article from Monday of this week on the Library of Congress Annual Letters About Literature Contest Winners for 2016-2017.

“The Library of Congress is using the mail to help young people learn more about literature.

The library’s annual Letters About Literature contest asks students in grades 4-12 to write to an author — living or dead — about how his or her work affected the reader’s life.

More than 43,700 readers across the nation mailed letters in this year’s contest. Top letter writers are chosen from each state, along with several national honorees.”

To see the listing of the 2017 National Winners and National Winners.

It is especially fun to see their Envelope Art items at the site, i.e. like the six shown in the image upper left of today’s blog post.

I’m interested in finding out the 2017-2018 Contest and future details – stay tuned!

Anchors Aweigh,
