2020 Carmen Oliver On-the-Verge Annual Austin SCBWI Conference Scholarship

The Carmen Oliver On-the-Verge Annual Austin SCBWI Conference Scholarship is awarded each year to a children’s book writer who has the passion and desire to pursue a career in this industry. It is designed to give the winning writer a good foundation from which they can continue to learn and grow as a children’s book author. We received many fantastic entries, so it was a tough decision.

Congratulations to winner of the 2020 Carmen Oliver On-the-Verge Annual Austin SCBWI Conference Scholarship.

Watch for news about 2021 scholarship applications in the fall.
