Entry Procedures:

Read the Rules and FAQ first, and then fill out the online entry form [click on the link above] and make your payment through PayPal. You will automatically be directed to PayPal upon completion of your entry.  A separate entry fee of $35.00 is required for each title entered; however, entrants may “bundle” payments for multiple entries. Just be sure to list all titles under the “notes” section on PayPal so we can match payment to entry. After your entry has been received and the deadline has passed, you will be sent the name and address of your coordinator in early December with mailing instructions for your books.

To enter Best First Book, add $5.00 to the entry fee of that book.

If you do not pay your NRCA entry fee via PayPal at the time you submit, please use treasurer@okrwa.com as the email address when you log into PayPal at a later time. Entries will not be final and official until payment is made and verified.

CLICK HERE for information about using Paypal — there’s even a video!
