The 2017 Young Authors Program at Young Elementary School is officially underway!
This program is intended to generate appreciation and recognition of children’s writing. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade are encouraged to participate in the Young Authors Program by writing and submitting an original story, essay, or collection of poems. No school time will be allotted for production of these manuscripts so this is a voluntary at-home activity. Students must create new written work for this program. Please do not use any piece you have already created.
All entries must be turned in to Young Elementary School no later than February 24th.
It is our goal at Young Elementary School to recognize all Young Authors. Every child who creates a book becomes a District 204 Young Author and will receive participation acknowledgement. All participants will have their manuscript displayed in the LMC. In addition, authors will receive special recognition on the morning announcements. One winner will be selected per grade. One student from our school will be selected to represent our school at the Young Authors Conference in May. We are so proud to have so many creative students at our school and we look forward to seeing what you produce.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
