Over the past month, students from all grade levels at our school have been participating in a writing contest sponsored by Avid Bookshop, a new independent bookshop in Athens. We had over 50 students enter the contest, and I’ve heard that Avid received hundreds of entries from local schools. Today, the finalists were announced. They will be honored this Sunday November 13th at Avid from 1-3:00PM. Some of the students will read from their stories and the top winner will be announced. The top winner’s story will be submitted to a national contest sponsored by Chris Van Allsburg in celebration of his new compilation, The Chronicles of Harris Burdick.
Congratulations to our Barrow finalists:
Amelia Ray and Hanna Lee
We hope to see lots of supporters at Avid on Sunday.
