Once again, Lowville Academy Middle School applauds sixth graders for their outstanding writing. Anna Exford and Kyra Reali placed first and second place respectively at the sixth-grade level of the 2017 Annual Greater Thousand’s Literacy Council Young Writers’ Contest. The annual contest required students to write about a theme: If I were invisible I would…and why. Nine school districts from the region participated in the competition. Winners were selected at each grade level, kindergarten through twelfth grade.
Anna is a gifted writer who has the ability to succinctly articulate her ideas. She has a way of capturing people and the world from a surprising perspective. Anna uses sentence structures to create engaging stories like musicians use notes to play different tunes. We are proud of her hard work.
Kyra, too, is a gifted writer with a distinctive voice, revealing bits of her soul with each story she tells. She uses words to take readers on an engaging journey beyond their imaginations. Kyra, aspires to be a published author, a dream that will very likely become reality. We are proud of her dedication to writing.
Participants, winners, and teachers are invited to attend a celebratory author’s reading at Case Middle School in Watertown on April 11, 2017. First place winners will participate in an author’s reading. During the celebration, the participants will receive ribbons and gifts.
