2017/2018 Winter Writing Contests for Grades 3-5

Our Advanced Learning Specialist (ALS), Kimi Ishikawa, is excited to announce winter writing contests for any 3rd-5th grade students. Kids can sink their teeth in over winter break, and submit their entries to Ms. Ishikawa when school is back in session! Details on each contest are below. In addition, all contest entries that are also submitted as a google doc shared with Ms. Ishikawa will be published in a school anthology, and writers will get a copy.
