Curtis Granderson is more than just a popular center fielder for the Detroit Tigers. He's now a author as well.
Granderson, author of the children's book All You Can Be, wants Michigan fourth graders to provide illustrations through a contest.
With help from the Michigan Department of Education, the Grand Kids Foundation and Triumph Books are holding a contest, inviting fourth graders across the state to submit their artwork through their school for consideration to be included in the book.
The contest will be conducted in classrooms at Michigan grade schools, each of which received an information packet.
The theme for submissions is simple: How do you see yourself when you are in high school, and how is education important in helping you become that person?

Entries from each class should be submitted to Triumph Books, c/o Curtis Granderson, 542 S. Dearborn St., Suite 750, Chicago, IL 60605.
