Young Author's Conference Highlights Young Wordsmiths

Congratulations go to the Young Authors Conference winners and to the 68 students who submitted stories or poems. Held at the Lincoln School, the Young Author’s Conference featured local children’s author Kate Hannigan, creator of the Cupcake Cousins series. Ms. Hannigan provided real-world writing tips to the young authors in attendance. The winners of this year’s Young Authors Conference are Cassidy Sturgeon, a fourth grader at Lincoln; Sasha Giannotti Guralnick, a third grader at Willard; and Gabrielle Williams, a fifth grader at Roosevelt. Be sure to read the winning entries by clicking on the story titles: The Red Wolf Pack of the Woodlands, by Cassidy Sturgeon; Apartment #10, by Sasha Giannotti Guralnick; and Chasing Moonlight, by Gabrielle Williams. District 90’s three winning students, along with students who submitted entries, will also have the opportunity to attend the 43rd Statewide Young Authors Conference that will be held on Saturday, May 20, at Illinois State University.
