Congratulations to this year's NCTE Promising Young Writer Contest finalists! Atlantic Rajakumar, Franny Tetlow, and Grace Wagner will move on to the national competition. Congratulations also to our three honorable mention writers Ashley Dick, Isabella Evans, and Kamrynn Smith. Thanks to all of our 8th grade participants for their hard work--you made this decision difficult on our judges! Thanks also to the teachers who served as judges--the hours you spent reading and judging are much appreciated. Good luck to our three finalists as they move on to the national competition!
