Many thanks to Urania Smith of KidLit Nation who randomly pulled the winner’s names. She founded KidLit Nation as the place for children’s authors and illustrators of color to get their publishing info, resources, and opportunities.
In the interest of full transparency, there is a winner whom I know well, but I had no hand in selecting the winners, which was done solely by Urania via random number generation. Please support Urania’s KidLit Nation if you can!
More daily prize winners to come soon…with more assistance from Urania. I am grateful for her support!
