Announcing the Kidlit Pride Scholarship

Gloria Day, 2019 Scholarship Recipient
The Kidlit Pride Scholarship was established to help qualified authors and illustrators from the LGBTQIA+ community attend any of our workshops.

“I do hope that Highlights continues to create and host workshops/events for the LGBTQIA+ community. Though sometimes overlooked, our stories are necessary and offer hope to children who find themselves in the books we write. It’s through your continued support that we can ensure that our voices are heard and our stories see the light of day.”
–Gloria Day, 2019 Scholarship Recipient

2020 Application Deadline is February 29, 2020.

In 2019, as part of our Essential Conversations series, the Highlights Foundation hosted Writing the Rainbow: Crafting Picture Books With LGBTQIA+ Themes. In 2020 we’re continuing the momentum with Writing the Rainbow: Middle Grade and Young Adult, A Working Symposium, September 13-16.
