High School Scholarship

New Creative Writing Scholarship Offered

PUBLICITY CONTACT: scholarshipcommittee@hushpuppybooks.com

Hush Puppy Books children’s press announced today the establishment of a new $1,000 semi-annual (December and May) scholarship award open to all high school seniors attending any US based high school. The award will be based on a 250-300-word review of either one of our two children’s stories — Longfellow and The Deep and Hidden Woods (ISBN 978-1610983440) or A Very Extra-Ordinary Place (978-1610983365).

The scholarship will be awarded based on originality, creativity, and the proper use of punctuation and grammar. Only one review of either of the books is required, but reviewing both books will be an advantage. The review of no more than 300 words must be posted to Amazon.com. The review must be made in the student’s own name and the review must also be posted to at least two social media sites, again under the student’s own name. Verification will be required.

To formally enter, please submit the final text of your review(s) to scholarshipcommittee@hushpuppybooks.com. Your entry must also include links to the social media sites where your reviews are posted.

The scholarship is only open to US citizens currently enrolled as high school seniors. Verification of current student status will be required upon scholarship award.

A profile of each of our winners will be featured right here on hushpuppybooks.com.

Here are some things you should know.

  • When making your submission, please include your full name, your age, the school you attend.
  • When considering the social media to which you will post your review, don’t over look YouTube and Pinterest. Remember, the object here is creativity and originality.
  • The best submissions will be featured on our Facebook page, Tumblr page, and promoted through our Twitter account. We want to acknowledge and reward your hard work.

  1. Don’t we have to have an amazon account and bought something from Amazon to post our 300 words?

    • yes, i suppose you do need to have an Amazon account to post a review there. but if you don’t have an Amazon account, there are plenty of other social media outlits, right?
