I'm not sure how to contact LucasArts about your idea, but if you aren't accepted (not saying you won't be accepted, this is just a backup option) you can still write the book on the Star Wars fanon. I'm writing a few books myself on the fanon site. You may have to work for LucasArts for them to accept your idea, but anything's possible.

P.S. Here's the link to the fanon site (just in case) - http://www.swfanon.wikia.com

If you want to write your own Star Wars related stories, you can always do it here and post it up for others to view... There's a forum called "Coruscant Entertainment Centre" aka "CEC" which allows people to write fan fiction.

You don't need to get permission from anyone involved with Star Wars, just don't try to sell your work and make money from it.

Become an author of other kinds of books as you grow up and then maybe some day you'll be able to write our own Star Wars books which are officially licensed by LucasFilms... there's still a long way to go for you.
