About the SABF Fiction Contest Contest:

The Fiction Contest is a wonderful opportunity for young writers and storytellers to showcase their creativity. Winners from each grade category will not only have their work showcased at the San Antonio Book Festival, but will be awarded CASH PRIZES, ride on the official Texas Cavaliers Fiesta float in the river parade, have their stories published in the Texas Cavaliers' official program, and win Whataburger for a year!
