2019 Young Authors Winners Announced

Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Young Authors contest!

Young Authors is an optional program for students in kindergarten through middle school that is completed at home. Participating in Young Authors puts into practice (in a fun way!) the writing process that students use throughout the school year.

In addition, we thank all of the community volunteers who lent their time to serve as judges for the contest.
