The School District of Palm Beach County Recognizes Future Authors Project

Melville, N.Y. -  Canon Solutions America, Inc., a subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., was honored recently for their Future Authors Project by The School District of Palm Beach County, Florida, with a Bronze Business Partner Award in the large business category. In its ninth year, the private-public partnership with the school district helps students learn about the processes of writing, editing, and digitally publishing books.

Middle and high school students are nominated by their language arts teachers to participate in a free eight-day summer writing workshop, where they spend time with teachers, authors, and previous participants to practice creating written pieces in various genres. Their writings are then compiled, professionally published, and digitally printed in final book form by Canon Solutions America’s Production Print Solutions division. Nearly 400 Palm Beach County students have participated in the program since its inception.

“What an honor it is to be counted among such major companies in South Florida as Publix and PGA National Resort and Spa to be recognized for our Future Authors program,” said director of marketing, Production Print Solutions Eric Hawkinson, who is based in Canon Solutions America’s Boca Raton offices.

“We’ve seen first hand how this program has helped to ignite a passion for writing in the young people who participate, and look forward to working with the District to help more students achieve their dreams of becoming published authors.”

For more information about how to support the Future Authors Project, contact the Executive Director of the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, Mary Kay Murray, atmurraymk@palmbeach.k12.fl.us.
