About the SABF Fiction Contest Contest
The Fiction Contest was a wonderful opportunity for young writers and storytellers in grades 7-12 across Bexar County to showcase their creativity. Winners from each of the three grade categories (7th-8th; 9th-10th; and 11th-12th) did not only have their work showcased at a special session during the San Antonio Book Festival, but were awarded cash prizes, rode on the official Texas Cavaliers Fiesta float in the River Parade, and had their stories published on the Festival website and other local publications!
The Fiction Contest was an annual program of the San Antonio Book Festival from 2014 to 2018. During that time, $12,100 was awarded to contest winners and their schools. Click below to see past Fiction Contest winners and read their stories:
