Edna and Benjamin Shenker Creative Writing Contest

Russell Library sponsors the Edna and Benjamin Shenker Creative Writing Contest annually. The contest is held in memory of Mrs. Shenker who was an avid reader and library user, and Dr. Shenker, a wonderful supporter of the library. Young writers are encouraged to write a short story or poem on a theme that changes each year. This year’s theme was "How I Would Make the World Better!"
We received notification that several Macdonough School students have been selected as winners of this year’s contest!

Congratulations to:

· First Grader Chris Johnson
· Third Grader Syleena Daniels
· Fourth Grader Alex Judkins
· Fifth Grader Kimberly Chambers

The students will be honored at a Literary Tea on Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 7:00 PM in The Hubbard Room at Russell Library!
