Creative Writing Competition update

January 13, 2010

Thanks to everyone who entered the Creative Writing Competition.  We had an enormous response this year: 249 entries!  This more than doubled the participation last year. Curious about how many entries came from your school?

Austin 12
CHS 18
CMSE 12
CMSN 21
CMSW 15
Cottonwood Creek 13
Denton Creek 16
homeschool 1
Lakeside 6
Mockingbird 8
New Tech 19
Pinkerton 13
Town Center 57
Universal Academy 2
Valley Ranch 18
Wilson 17

Grand Total 249

As a result, we recruited more judges:

  • Kim Smith: author of Sydney Wakefield, Into the Faraway
  • Matt Bowden: Coppell High School Teacher
  • Gina Peddy: Coppell High School Dean of Instruction
  • Nicole Scott: Pinkerton Teacher
  • Jennifer Judd: author
  • Jennifer Smith: author
  • Debra Marshall: Wilson Librarian
  • Carol Smith: Wilson Teacher
  • Angela Gortz: LISD Teacher

Currently, these judges are reviewing and ranking all the entries.  We are hoping to have the results by the first week of February (watch the website for updates).

If you see any of the judges, please thank them for devoting their time and energy — we couldn’t have this competition without their generosity and talent.

The finalists will be published in a book that will be available for pre-order in March.

Everyone is welcome to come to the Book Release Party on April 10, 2010 and celebrate the talent of these young authors.
