2020-2021 Results

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:
ELEMENTARY
POETRY—Write a poem about something that is your favorite (examples: your favorite pet, food, holiday, activity).
SHORT STORY – Write a story about someone who is forgetful.

JUNIOR HIGH
POETRY—Write a poem about something you use everyday (examples: toothbrush, spoon, cell phone, chair).
SHORT STORY – Write a story that involves changed plans.

Below are the results from our SCS in-house contest. Congratulations to all of our students for a job well done!!
