Youth aged 6–16 are invited to enter The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Comics Contest, sponsored by Amulet Books in coordination with the School Library Journal. To enter the contest, students simply create an original comic on one side of an 8 1/2” x 11” piece of white paper. The comic must be created by a single student; collaborative works are not eligible. One grand-prize winner will receive $500 for him- or herself, $1,000 for the library of his or her choosing and a signed copy of The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book by Jeff Kinney. Twenty runners-up will also receive a signed copy of the book. The deadline for submissions is June 10, 2011.  Click here for more information:
