Writing Contest Awards

Last night Brutus attended the awards program for the Friends of the Library 3rd Grade Writing Contest at the Durand branch. Here he is shown with the students who received awards. Honorable Mention went to Shane Gardner, Kyle Godley, Joel Landeros, and Jacob Pickel. Winning Entry prizes were awarded to Julia Podsiadlik, Zackary Canfield, and Jared McGinnis.

Brutus was surprised to find out this is the 42nd year for the writing contest, and he figured out that it's six years old in dog years. He was disappointed there were not any stories about dogs but there was one story about cats, "The Cat Alphabet Book". He promised to not chew that book as long as he got a bite of one of the cookies that were served afterwards.
