Award Winning Young Writers of SLO County!
In April of 2010 and 2011, I joined a group of teachers to serve as judges for the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education "Writing Celebration" competition.
Student entries are from grades 1-12 and are submitted in 4 categories: Poetry, Personal Experience, Expository and Imaginative Narrative.
The first level screening occurs at the school district level with approximately 600 entries sent to the county level to be judged.
An award's ceremony is held for the winners at Laguna Middle School in SLO in May. Medals and certificates are given to the first place winners. Honorable mentions are also awarded.
It's a privilege to read this work!! There is some amazing young talent in our county!
