The Scholastic Asian Book Award

Have you written a children's story that is inspired by Asia? If yes, please do consider joining The Scholastic Asian Book Award. An excerpt:

The National Book Development Council of Singapore and Scholastic Asia are jointly launching the Asian children’s book prize. The award, called the Scholastic Asian Book Award (SABA), will recognise Asians and children’s writers of Asian origin who are taking the experiences of life, spirit and thinking in different parts of Asia to the world at large. The award would also promote the understanding of the Asian experience and its expression in innovative and creative forms.

First prize is S$10,000, and it will be awarded in May 2011.

I can think of possibly three PGS contributors who might want to give this a try. :D

Oh, yes! You certainly can, too, Celestine!

Maybe Paolo Chikiamco also!

I wish you the best of luck. I hope you win!
