Getting a book published?

I am writing a book, and it is completed except for editing. It is about 105 pages. I want to see if i could have any chance to get it published considering that i am young, and also if anyone would read it. I was looking up writing contest and there is one where if selected they will give you 1,000 dollars and a book contract. Or do i want to do something else, to get it published. What should i do? Thanks for absolutewrite, i joined it. Thanks for absolutewrite, i joined it. Thanks.
