The 2020 KindCraft Book Contest
KindCraft is publishing our 1st Kindness Book and we want YOU to enter our contest for the chance to be featured in our “Crafting Kindness book”. Our goal in writing this book is to teach others how they can “craft kindness”. Kids can submit an entry for our contest to illustrate/write a page for our 1st published book. A panel of judges will select 18 story page winners and 1 cover page that will be published under the book title “Crafting Kindness”. This book will be placed in various businesses such as dentists, doctors offices, orthodontists - basically anywhere kids will be hanging out!
The theme of this book is kids teaching kids how to spread kindness.
Ask yourself the question, “What are some ways I like to spread kindness?”What acts of kindness seem to be enjoyed by others the most? What acts of kindness bring me the most joy?
Draw a picture to illustrate how you craft (spread) kindness. You can choose a page that has lines for text or a page for just an illustration
Children under the age of 18 may submit entries to the contest.ontest.
