Letter: An incredible writing contest

An incredible writing contest

The Fraser Creative Writing Contest is an incredible opportunity for students at Aspen Elementary School to write unique and wonderful stories. For the past 14 years, Jill Sheeley, a local author, has been the inspiration behind the contest. This year. there were 68 entries into the Fraser Creative Writing Contest: 27 third-grade entries and 41 fourth-grade entries. Both Jill and Mary Hayes spent hours reading and rereading each entry. Their hard work paid off when the many winners were announced at an assembly and the enthusiastic crowd cheered for each winner. We are grateful to both Jill and Mary for creating this opportunity for kids.
