Sagip Call for Entries

The Outlooke Pointe Foundation, together with the PTC-CSJ Foundation, is launching theSAGIP Children’s Storybook Writing Contest. What they are looking for is a 500-750 word kids’ story, on the theme “SAVING OUR SEAS”. Just the words, not the drawings–the winning entry will be illustrated by one of their in-house artist-advocates. Just type it up in a .doc file (Surname.Firstname.doc) and shoot it (along with the application form) over to

The winning book will be published and donated to the various public schools around the Philippines, to enhance their English Literacy Program, and will also be sold exclusively at POWERBOOKS. So do it for the children eh? And if you need more incentive: how does a grand prize of PHP40,000 sound? Well, let’s say a rate of around PHP55 per word isn’t shabby at all.

Deadline for submissions is November 30, 2009. They say that they’ll announce the winners the first week of December. Heh. Good luck with that.

More details can be found at the contest announcement here. Thanks to Dominique for the tip!
