Children and teens in Preschool through 12th Grade are invited to submit an original illustration or piece of writing to the 2023 Children's Writing & Illustrating contest! In this year's contest, students are asked to write about an "Amazing Beach Discovery." What if, one day - your or your character - finds something at the beach? Something truly amazing. Wow! What is it? Something outrageous? Something historical? Real or unreal? What does this discovery mean? Write and/or illustrate a story about discovering something or someone amazing at the beach.
