CHS Writers Awarded at PLU Ceremony

Snarly (aka, Karli) Stevenson not pictured
In the regional Writing and Art contest, Our Own Expressions, sponsored by the Pierce County Library Foundation and the Morning News Tribune, with more than 1,000 entries, my writing students managed to win 6 of 12 awards in the short story and poetry categories. Including the Drawing category, CHS students won 9 of 18 high school cash prize awards (including sweeping the drawing category for 9th and 10th grades--way to go Eva Battle, CHS art teacher extraordinaire!). 
CHS students read their winning short stories and poetry and commented on their drawings and received their awards at Lagerquist Hall on the campus of Pacific Lutheran University last night (May 28, 2014). 
Note below that Hana Jang, 1st Place in the short story category, is writing fiction in English as a second language; special congratulations to you, Hana!
