Book Contest

Elite Life Skills Coaching Announces 'Design a Book Cover Contest' for Second Book

Elite Life Skills Coaching is seeking entrants (high school students only) to its "Design a Book Cover Contest." The contest is open to high school students who are able to design a front page cover for M.C. Lishay's second book,"Group Home Drama: Alyssa's Story." Proof of high school enrollment is required (copy of school ID, etc.)

Applicants' design must capture the essence of Alyssa, a 16-year-old girl who lived in a group home with nine other girls. Alyssa had a magnetic personality and always wore long shirts and long pants no matter how hot it was outside. It could be 100 degrees outside and Alyssa would be covered from head to toe. There is a general theme with Alyssa, as with Raven. You may pick up additional hints about Alyssa in Lishay's first book, "Group Home Drama: Raven's Story."

To enter the contest, applicants:

  1. should complete the "Book Contest Registration Form"; and
  2. Then e-mail their cover design in one of the following formats: jpg, bmp, png, or gif and in 300 dpi to by December 31, 2019.

Elite staff will do an initial screening of all entries and discard those that don't match the general theme of the book or are inappropriate. Next, staff will review their favorites and upload each book cover image on Elite's web site and any of its social media accounts and ask the public to vote on the best of the bunch.
