Congratulations to Briah, 6, and Austin, 8, state-level winners in the 2010 PBS Kids Go Writers Contest. Briah’s story, “Barbershop Bella,” earned First Place in the Kindergarten Division and has been entered in the national competition. You can see a slide show of Briah’s story at this Wisconsin Public Television link: http://www.wpt.org/kids/writerscontest.cfm
Austin’s story, “The Thug Get-Away,” earned a Judge’s Choice award in the Second Grade Division. Briah and Austin were two of the participants in a 5-week writing workshop at the Marathon County Public Library. The library’s writing workshop was funded by a materials grant from Wisconsin Public Television. Thank you to Rachel Cornelius and volunteers Sara Klawitter, Chari Fish and Karyn Powers for their help at the workshops!
