While we were away my local television station did a "Beware" on this publisher, who apparently goes through school English teachers to offer a contest with various prizes, one of which is inclusion in an anthology. They do actually give away the prizes they promise but the anthology is a whopping $50 available only if the parents want to pay for it. Out of 74 students from one school who entered, four were rejected.
Didn't find anything about this publisher in the thread search I did, so I thought I'd post it here.
The story can be found at CFCN TV, Consumer Watch archives.

This sounds like a spin-off of Poetry.com/International Library of Poetry. It sounds very similar, especially the part about a $50 anthology.
