The generous contributions of our sponsors help pay for prizes awarded to our winners and maintain affordable entry fees for OWFI’s prestigious writing contest. Affiliate Groups are encouraged to sponsor one or more categories. Individual and business sponsorships are welcome. All sponsors will be acknowledged in the awards booklet and during the awards banquet. (Which happens to serve as a great advertising opportunity!) No contribution is too small. We will gladly make use of your pocket change! It all adds up in the end.

Full Sponsorship for the Categories 30–34: Published Books trophy awards is $60.
