Meagan Sanders of Haughton, Louisiana, is the winner of the third, annual, Books-A-Million Writing Scholarship.

Meagan Sanders created and illustrated Boogie Woogie Man, her first book, while still a senior at Haughton High School in Louisiana. Meagan is at present a freshman at the Louisiana State University in Shreveport taking a degree course in Elementary Education.

The scholarship, created by Books-A-Million in 2006, acknowledges outstanding new authors and illustrators of children’s books. Each year, one student or team of students will receive a $5,000 scholarship, to be used for any line of study at any U.S. college or university, the award-winning piece to be published and sold in all Books-A-Million locations.

Well done Meagan. I wish you all the best.
