Each year the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS) conducts a national Creative Writing contest for elementary (4th-6th) and junior high (7th-8th) students. In order to send our best entries to this competition, SCS conducts our own in-house Creative Writing Contest. Students are given the option of writing either a short story or poem during a 90-minute writing session.
The topics chosen by the AACS for this year were as follows:
POETRY—Write a poem about this topic: Promises.
SHORT STORY – Write a story about someone who tries something difficult or hard.
POETRY—Write a poem about this topic: Reflections.
SHORT STORY – Write a story that begins with the words, “Shifting her glance to the side of the chair, she noticed a small green suitcase.”
Below are the results from our SCS in-house contest. Congratulations to all of our students for a job well done!!
