The Cazenovia Schools District is delighted to announce that four students from Burton Street Elementary School have been selected to be published in The Young Writers’ “Spooky Sagas 2019 – Ghost Stories from New York” publication. Students were selected from over 10,000 entries received by Young Writers, whose aim is to “get kids to be passionate and confident writers… and stand a realistic chance of seeing their work in print.”
In collaboration with Burton Street’s Library Media Specialist, Katherine McGinnis, Cherie Ward (2nd Grade Teacher) offered the contest to students in early October as an enrichment activity. Four students submitted their work, including Lily Berg, author of “The Vanishing Witch,” Bailey Russin, author of “The Zombies in The Woods,” Elliot Wright, author of “Spooky Life,” and Walter Denkenberger, authoring “The Zombie and The Vampire”. All were selected to be featured in this year’s publication hitting the shelves on February 29, 2020. Please join us in congratulating these newly published young writers!
