Okay, I was asked my a teacher to help her with her son. Her little boy (third or fourth grade, I think) is doing a lot of writing. This teacher knew that I am pursuing a writng career, and she asked me to find out about some children's writing competitions.

I haven't seen the boy's work, but I definitely want to help her find some contests. Does anyone know of any?

Hm, this got buried so I'm bumping it up. If it still gets no response, I'll move it to Children's Writing. The only kids' contests I'm aware of are done by Cricket Magazine, but it's been awhile since I looked.

You might want to check Stories for Children Magazine. It's an online magazine and it doesn't pay anything, but it's done well and it does have catagories for young writers.
