Wilson Students are Published Authors

Wilson Students are Published Authors
Posted on 05/21/2021
Some of our young students at Woodrow Wilson are now certified published authors. Last year, librarian Reiley Evans received an entry packet from Young Writers USA. In it was information for a student writing contest. The contest, called Spooky Sagas, was for students in third through fifth grade and required students to write a spooky story in 100 words or less.
Evans thought this was a great opportunity to encourage literacy and creativity for the Wilson students.
Students were able to voluntarily participate in this writing project on their own free time during lunch or recess. Evans was surprised that so many students wanted to participate in the project. She said that 27 student submissions were chosen to be published in the book.
Evans said after she was notified of the winning submissions, she planned a surprise pizza party for the students.
“The students were really proud of what they had done and that they were published authors that were in a real book that was in the Library of Congress,” Evans said.
She hopes that being published authors will encourage these bright students to continue their writing.
