Missouri Center for the Book Announces Award Winners for its NEA-Funded Contest, “Word and Image”

25 July 2014

The Ozarks Chapter of the Missouri Center for the Book is pleased to announce the winners of its recent contest, “Word and Image.” Sponsored by the Missouri Center for the Book (MCB) and funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the contest aimed to celebrate and promote “book arts” in its twin aspects: the “Word” or written text that stimulates the imagination, and the lively “Image” that illuminates—or inspires—storytelling. 

TWO MISSOURI STUDENTS WIN TOP NATIONAL LETTERS ABOUT LITERATURE AWARDS! JAYANTH V. UPPALURI AND DEVI ACHARYA, BRAVO!

"In an age like ours, which is not given to letter-writing, we forget what an important part it used to play in people's lives."  ~Anatole Broyard (1920-1990)

The late Mr. Broyard would certainly have been delighted to learn what an important part letter- writing still plays in the lives of Missouri students.
