There are several writing contests open in July! 

Cozy Rainbow runs writing and art challenges every 6-8 weeks. There are no prizes for winning, but they are a great way for artists ages 7 to 17 to practice their skills. The latest challenge is to write Ms. Carillo a letter on which is the cutest Squishmallow ever.
