2018 Student Contest Winners

The Burlington Writers Club (BWC) 2018 Student Contest Awards ceremony was held April 22nd at the Graham Presbyterian Church. BWC is a proud sponsor of this annual contest to encourage students in Alamance County to use their imagination and hone their writing skills. The event is made possible in part by the NC Arts Council – a division of the Department of Cultural Resources through the Alamance Arts.  There were 356 students from 18 participating schools. Students in the elementary, middle and high school submitted entries in poetry and fiction categories. Student winners were from the Blessed Sacrament, Bradford Academy, River Mill Academy, Southern Alamance High School and Veritas. Trophies and certificates of merit were awarded to the winning students. The event was well attended with over 100 families, teachers, and members of the BWC present.

 

Rich Jackson, executive editor, of The Times News offered praise and encouragement to the students.


Congratulations on a job well done!
