As most people know Journalism had a story contest. A specific genre and word count were given. Because of the small number of entries, we decided to make an extension in the due date and the number of pages.
Thanks to language arts students and their second-trimester narratives, we got plenty of amazing stories. Some stories didn’t fit the action-adventure genre exactly, but they were still accepted.
With a total of 15 stories entered, we chose the winners. All that can be said at this point is the that there are three winners and every story that was read was amazing.
We will be announcing these three amazing winners at the Cougar Pride assembly on April 10th. Each of these winners will get a certificate of excellence, and the person in first place will get their story posted on the Cougar Chronicle.
We evaluated each and every story and wished we could choose each as the winner, but sadly we couldn’t.
Here is what the creator of the contest Mia Grasse has to say, “These stories were all so amazing it was hard trying to choose three, but we chose what we thought was the best of the best.”
