I am submitting for your consideration a free writing contest sponsored by the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy that may be of interest to your readers/writers.

The “Devotedly, Dad” letter contest is open to America’s fathers and grandfathers as an opportunity to encourage a love of reading and writing in their homes. We’re asking dads to write a letter to a child or grandchild about the importance of literacy and learning.  Write from the heart, the head or the funny bone and simply sign it … “Devotedly, Dad.” 

Winners will receive a prize package including an autographed copy of “All the Best, My Life in Letters and Other Writings” by President George H.W.  Bush.

Contest Rules:
•        Entry is free
•        Original letters (maximum word count 800) must be submitted by fathers or grandfathers
•        Deadline for submissions– May 30, 2013, 5 p.m. EST
•        We’re looking for letter writers across America – two letters from each state will be winners
•        Winners will be notified through email by Father’s Day, June 16, 2013. Winning letters will be featured on our website atwww.BarbaraBushFoundation.com
•        All entries, upon the sole discretion of the Barbara Bush Foundation, may be published in full or excerpt form, online or in print/broadcast form via the Barbara Bush Foundation, news organizations or other publications
