Step 1: Get the promotional kit for Waiting
- Booksellers, if you haven’t received one, you can order a kit from the HarperCollins warehouse using ISBN 97800624246799.
- Librarians, you can request a kit by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org ; be sure to include the mailing address of your library, and use the subject line “Waiting promo kit request.”
Step 1: Use the materials in the kit (and your imagination) to create a display promoting Waiting, and maintain the display for at least one week between August 15 and October 15, 2015.
The kit contains a window cling featuring Kevin Henkes’s adorable animal characters, plus a broadside perfect for framing or raffling. Feel free to incorporate other Kevin Henkes books in your display, if you’d like. The store or library that creates the most effective and creative display will win an appearance by Kevin Henkes.
Step 3: Before October 15, fill out the entry form and submit up to four photos of your display. Entries will be judged by HarperCollins Children’s Books based on presentation, visual appeal, and originality. Winners will be chosen and contacted by email by November 30, 2015.
One grand-prize winner will receive an appearance by Kevin Henkes and a custom window display (created by Kevin Henkes). Three runners-up will receive a set of signed Kevin Henkes books. There is no purchase necessary, and the contest is open to stores and libraries within the United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii). For more details and official rules, click here.
