CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire students in grades 4 through 12 are being encouraged to write a personal letter to an author explaining how his or her work changed their view of the world or of themselves.

The “Letters About Literature” contest is nationally sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.

Entries for grades 9-12 must be postmarked no later than Dec. 15. Entries for grades 4-6 and grades 7-8 must be postmarked no later than Jan. 15, 2015.

A panel of New Hampshire judges will select the top letters in each level. Winners will receive $100 from the Center for the Book at the New Hampshire State Library.

Those letters then advance for national judging for $1,000 prizes.
