STORY CONTEST

The May issue is a "Story Contest Issue." We choose three stories from each of four ages brackets: 6-8; 9-11; 12-14; 15-17. These winning selections receive an assortment of awards from various sponsors. In 2018, awards came from Nature's Workshop Plus, Christian Light Publications, and Nature Friend. Besides the assortment of awards, the grand prize of a Vortex binocular was awarded to one submission.

READERS' ISSUE

The June issue is a "Readers' Issue," and is compiled from cover through cover using submissions from readers. Your artwork, photography, stories, articles, art lesson, puzzles, and projects are used to make up this issue. Many of the main features receive an assortment of awards from various sponsors. In 2018, awards came from Nature's Workshop Plus, Christian Light Publications, and Nature Friend. Besides the assortment of awards, the grand prize of a Vortex binocular was awarded to one submission.

BONUS READERS' ISSUE

We usually run an unannounced bonus readers' issue in the fall. We compile this issue from overflow submissions received for the June Readers' Issue. 

Additionally, overflow material that doesn't make these three special issues continues to be considered for any of the other nine issues throughout the year.
