Celebrating our Young Authors
Posted on 04/20/2018
The Grand Champion Young Authors for 2018.On Thursday, April 19, the District held its annual Young Authors' Recognition Ceremony. Parents, grandparents, teachers, and administrators filled the gym at Fulton School to congratulate these outstanding students.

Prior to the awards ceremony, students from each school had the chance to speak to Dan Gutman, an award-winning children's author. The students were thrilled to have Dan answer their questions via video chat.

After the Q & A session, the finalists from each grade were recognized before the grand champions were announced. The 10 grand champions will be recognized by the Board of Education at its May meeting.

Students from across the District were invited to participate in this year's Young Authors contest. From all of the entries, judges narrowed it down to 52 finalists.

Two students from each school were selected as the 2018 Grand Champions.
