Giveaway: Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories New Author Contest!

Through its annual New Author Contest, Cheerios® cereal will make this dream a reality for one aspiring children´s book author. One Grand Prize Winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize and a possible publishing deal with Simon & Schuster Children´s Publishing, in addition to having his or her book featured inside Cheerios cereal boxes nationwide!!
