June 24, 2014 // Franchising.com // RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. – Eye Level (myeyelevel.com), the global leader in self-directed learning, is proud to announce its 22nd Annual Literature Award, a worldwide competition that highlights the talents of aspiring authors of children's books. Adults and children can enter the competition July 1 through Aug. 31, 2014 for a chance to have their story published and win one of three global grand prizes, including a trip to South Korea and cash prizes of up to $10,000.

This year, Eye Level is inviting students to submit illustrations and short narratives to compete for a chance to have their works published and featured in an Eye Level calendar. Student entrants are required to submit their entries at their local Eye Level Learning Center. Categories include:

  • Kindergartners/Pre-K Students will be tasked with creating an illustration and caption about one of several themes, such as "My Family" and "My Favorite." One grand prize winner will receive $300; winners of a first place prize of $200 and second place prize of $100 will also be selected.
  • Elementary Students will create an illustration and short narrative (50 words or less) about "My Dream." The theme is deeply rooted in the philosophy of the learning center, which encourages children to become self-directed learners to achieve their individual dreams. One grand prize winner will receive an all-expense-paid trip to South Korea and $200. Winners of a first place prize of $300 and second place prize of $200 will also be selected.

To encourage aspiring authors of all ages, adults 18 and older are also invited to submit a short story targeted toward children ages four to 14. The grand prize winner for the Short Story category will receive $10,000 in addition to an all-expense-paid trip to South Korea. A first place prize of $4,000 and a second place prize of $3,000 will also be selected. Adult entrants are required to submit their pieces online at www.myeyelevel.com.
