Breckinridge Elementary Young Writers

posted Mar 14, 2013, 8:12 AM by bcps web

Each year the Roanoke Valley Reading Association, a local affiliate of the Virginia State Reading Association, invites students within our valley to write and illustrate an original story.  The student writes a rough draft, edits, creates a final draft, makes a cover, illustrates the story and this becomes a book.  These books are submitted for judging.  Judges are looking for originality, neatness and a well crafted story.  March 25, there will be a Young Writer’s Celebration where the authors and their families are invited to attend.

The following students from Breckinridge Elementary in Fincastle participated this year:
front:  David Winfield, Isabelle Collins, Corey Elkins, Gabe Staton, Cole Edwards, Lisette Lane, Jacob Begley,
back: Brennan Roop, Chandler Smith, Conner Wells, Rachael Michael, Trent Compton, Heath Andrews
Teacher:  Rhonda McDonald
