Six creative KCSD96 middle school writers from Twin Groves/Woodlawn will participate in the Illinois Statewide Young Authors' Conference in Normal, IL, next month.
These students used the FLEX period during their school day to develop and polish their work.
They submitted their creative writing entries to the Young Authors' Competition and were among those selected to attend the conference, where they'll have the opportunity to learn from published authors about the writing process and celebrate their own writing, as well. Teachers Ms. Reuter and Ms. Kumin will be attending the conference as teacher volunteers to help make this opportunity possible.
Students recognized for their creative writing include:
Shrinidhi Sriraman (Grade 6, Woodlawn)
Kyla Smith (Grade 7, Woodlawn)
Clara Sprague (Grade 8 Woodlawn)
Faizaan Siddique (Grade 6, Twin Groves)
Sanya Mahajan (Grade 8, Twin Groves)
Truman Warner (Grade 8, Twin Groves)
