Our school conducted judging for Young Authors.  After reading each entry, I noticed just how much our students are applying various forms of author’s craft.  Evidence of enriching lessons can be found in almost all of the books.  Choosing a class winner and then one winner to represent our school in Bloomington was a difficult task.  The judges reread the top three class winners several times before deciding on which piece was authored best using imagination, skill, craft and illustrations. I love this event.  We have the opportunity to see what talent our children have and how they get so excited to create and share books.  Young Authors is also a clever avenue to inspire children to be creative novelists. We celebrate their successes with a pizza luncheon, where each participant brings and shares his story. It genuinely is a rewarding experience for all.
