Letters about Literature

Texas students read their winning letters.

Letters about Literature is an annual reading/writing contest for 4 – 12 graders directed by the Library of Congress. Each year, tens of thousands of students from across the country enter the contest, writing letters to the authors of their favorite books that explain what the book means to them and how it has impacted their lives.

Texas winners receive $100 and a trip to the TLA Annual Conference to share their letters at the Letters about Literature event.

In addition, the Texas Association of School Librarians presents the School Administrator of the Year Award, Shirley Igo/ Texas PTA Collaboration Award, Media Virtual Presence (MVP) Awards, and MLIS Scholarships.
