Congratulations to Mrs. Close's Class at Elm Lawn Elementary!

Mrs. P (a FANTASTIC storyteller played by Kathy Kinney from the Drew Carrey Show!) hosts a contest each year for students- the Be-A-Famous Writer Contest! Students enter an original written story and judges vote on the best one. The class then wins prizes containing all types books from print to ebooks to audio books!

"The winning story, The Magic Baseball Poster, was written by Daniel Kim with help from Owen Sheehan. The story was picked over four other finalists for the national award."
