NORTH ROBINSON — Fifth-grade language arts students in the classes of Ms. Routzahn and Ms. Beck recently participated in a Young Writers Club contest, entitled “Spooky Sagas.”
“Spooky Sagas” challenged students to write a mini saga — a story told in just 100 words — using tension, suspense and atmosphere to bring their spooky tale to life. There were over 10,000 submitted stories nationwide, and from these, the submissions of several Colonel Crawford fifth-grade students were chosen as eligible for publication in a book of anthologies.
The mini sagas are selected based on imagination, creativity and use of language. All submitted and approved entries received a letter, a certificate, and a special bookmark.
Participants included: Ella Roub; Josie Smith; Riley Finnan; Peyton Rowlinson; Eli Lehman; Lexi Rankin; Lauren Roberts; Lillie Tieben; Evan Metzger; Hayleigh Welch; Luke Christman; Harmonee Harper; Lily Alberty; Jaycob Arnett; Parker Keller; Grace Bolles; Lilly Malone; Seth Farnsworth; Haylie Kovach; Autumn Messenger; Bryce Durham; Maelynn Webb; Lila Plesac; Addyson St. Clair; Jillian Rasnake; Drew Lipowski.
