The Amy Foundation is celebrating the 25th year of the Amy Writing Awards program. Last year more than 600 articles were submitted. Cash prizes totaling $34,000 were presented to fifteen authors in May for articles published in 2008. These include the $10,000 first prize award, $5,000 second prize, $4,000 third prize, $3,000 fourth prize, $2,000 fifth prize, as well as ten $1,000 awards of Outstanding Merit. For articles published during 2009, prizes will be awarded in May, 2010.
To be eligible, submitted articles must be published in a secular, non-religious publication (either printed or online) and must be reinforced with at least one passage of scripture. Each author may submit up to ten entries.
There is no entry fee. A submission form is available on The Amy Foundation website (www.amyfound.org). Past Amy Writing Award winning articles are posted on our website as well as printed in our annual booklet of prize-winning entries.
An information sheet is available on The Amy Foundation website (www.amyfound.org) that can be printed off.
