A couple of months ago, our Creative Writing students entered a competition created by the Young Writers organization, and several of our students' works were selected for publication! George Junior High will receive a copy of the book, and a copy will be sent to The Library of Congress. This was a major confidence boost for these students, as they are actually seeing how their voice CAN impact others!
