Writer's Showcase 2018
Open to students in Glenn County in grades K-12
An evening event for select students and their families
February 28, 2018
Glenn County students from Mill St., Lake, Plaza, Capay, Walden Academy, and Fairview Elementary participated in the Glenn County Office of Education’s annual Writer's Showcase.
Schools had the opportunity to nominate up to eight of their star writers to receive the Writer's Showcase Award. Entries from across the genres (including poetry, narrative, historical fiction, and expository writing) were chosen to best represent our area’s gifted young writers.
Winning students along with their families, teachers, and principals were invited to attend the Showcase on the evening of February 28 at the Memorial Hall in Orland for awards and a presentation by Susan B. Katz.
The participating K-8 schools also had the opportunity for Ms. Katz to present at their school for a school-wide assembly. Over the course of three days she spoke to close to 1,000 students about her experience as an author.
