They received certificates and prizes and were invited to an awards celebration. Winning letters will be posted on the Willamette Writers website<http://willamettewriters.org/letters-about-literature/>.

Staff and volunteers from Willamette Writers finished their first year coordinating the Letters About Literature program in Oregon. Kudos on their success and thanks again for giving LAL a new home. Nationally, this annual reading and writing program<http://read.gov/letters/> is sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress with support from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

Thanks to the Oregon Reading Association and three divisions of the Oregon Library Association – Children’s Services Division, Oregon Young Adult Network, and Oregon Association of School Libraries; all are local cosponsors and helped fund prizes. Also, thanks to the nine Oregon judges – a school librarian, public librarian, and author for each of the three levels – who devoted their time to reading entries.

For those interested in promoting Letters About Literature next school year, check the Willamette Writers website<http://willamettewriters.org/letters-about-literature/> in late September for entry forms and guidelines. Entries are usually due in December.
