To commemorate National Literacy Month this September, MeeGenius!, a new reading, bookstore and publishing app for kids that features word highlighting, audio playback and story personalization, is holding a nationwide search to discover and publish aspiring children’s book authors.
The contest, which kicks off September 16th, invites parents and children to submit an original manuscript via the MeeGenius! Web site. Each winning story will be published and illustrated on MeeGenius!, with a chance to win one of four iPad grand prizes and four second place iTouch prizes. Every winner will have his or her book published via MeeGenius! for all to download and enjoy – sharing a percentage of the revenue with MeeGenius! The contest ends October 16th.
