The Payson Public Library is sponsoring young authors (age 12 and under) to enter the Baker and Taylor Young Authors Writing Contest.
Children ages 12 and under may type or hand-write an original story of 500 to 750 words, based on Baker and Taylor's famous cat mascots.
Write an original story (500-750 words) based on the publisher's famous cat mascots, Baker and Taylor.
