    It’s difficult for me to read the light colored print on your site. Thought you would like to know…there may be others who have dimmed eyes. Thanks.

      The links and the menus were indeed a bit light, particularly once the link was pressed. I’ve darkened them up some. Thanks for the note.

      Adrianna,

      The New Mountain Voices Student Contest accepts entries from students in grades 1-12.

      The adult contest accepts works from any age, including grades 1-12. However, anyone in grades 1-12 who wishes to submit their work should know they will be competing against adults, so their odds of winning there are not always the best. It does happen, though. We had a 9th grade writer place in Book Length Prose/Young Adult last year, so it’s possible.

    When will pre-registration begin? I’d like to get my registration and room taken care of as soon as I can.

    Thanks!

    Oh, also – the room rates on the Cedar Lakes website differ from those on the flyer. Single/double occupancy rates per Cedar Lakes’ web page:
    Holt $72
    Mountaineer $60
    Main/Cedars/Lakes $50

    Will there be any special room rates for the conference, or will Cedar Lakes’ posted rates apply? (Basically, can we go ahead and reserve rooms now or should we wait to get lower rates later?)

    Thanks!

      Kate,

      No special rate that I’m aware of. We receive the rates that Cedar Lakes provides, which are usually their standard room rates. I don’t know if you can reserve rooms yet. Usually they wait until we open the registration for the conference itself. That usually happens in March.
