Every year, the Nassau Reading Council runs the Young Author's Contest. Schools from throughout Nassau County enter student-written narrative stories into the contest. The contest is organized by grade level, with winners from each grade. It is a very competitive process. Schools may enter only the best five pieces from each grade, and schools from throughout Nassau County submit entries. The winners' stories are published in a book that is sent to every school in Nassau County.
Kasey's story was selected as a winner of this year's Young Author's Contest. Her story will be published in the book. She and her family happily attended an awards ceremony at Molloy College in June.
Kasey's personal narrative was written in class, as part of her daily writing workshop work here at Sea Cliff. It was not a special assignment, but rather part of the first unit of the year, during which fifth graders write personal narratives. Many of our students produce excellent work as part of that unit. We are thrilled that Kasey is being recognized for her writing!
Congratulations to Kasey!
