The winners will be chosen in each of the nine regions and an overseas military base, and one grand prize-winner will receive a pair of domestic airplane tickets. Essay contests will also be held for booksellers and librarians with the grand prize bookseller winner getting tickets to BEA in 2015 and the librarian essay contest grand prize winner given a pair of tickets to next year's ALA convention.
