Several Village School students recently received awards from The Massachusetts Center for the Book for their submissions to this year's Letters about Literature program.
Letters about Literature, a national reading and writing program sponsored by the Library of Congress, asks students in Grades 4 through 12 to write letters to authors whose work has made a significant difference in their lives.
Village School students welcomed the opportunity to demonstrate their writing talents and love of literature. Massachusetts is, once again, a very high-performing state, with nearly 3000 entries.
The Village School Level I students distinguished themselves first with the national screening committee and then in the state judging!
Sixth-graders Anna Rigby and Ava Brenneman received Level 1 Honors this year, and are invited to a State House awards ceremony designed to recognize this special accomplishment.
Village School students who received recognition at the Honorable Mention level include Greta Cunningham, Sofie Kvaavik, and Cannan Whittier, while Summer Wolcott, Eleanore Small, and Hadley Kaeyer received awards at the Semi-Finalist level.
“It was an honor just to participate in this contest and display my love of reading and writing to Massachusetts and maybe even America,” shared the beaming Ava Brenneman.
