Letters About Literature Contest

Several middle school students have been selected for statewide judging in the 2019 West Virginia Letters About Literature Contest.
Letters About Literature is a reading and writing contest sponsored by the Library of Congress for students in grades 4-12. Students are asked to read a fiction or nonfiction book and write to the author about how the book affected them personally. Letters are judged on state and national levels. Tens of thousands of students from across the country enter Letters About Literature each year. 
These students have been invited to an awards ceremony in Charleston to receive certificates for their achievement and will have their letters published in a national anthology. Winners who receive additional honors for their submissions will be notified in early May. Congratulations to all of these students.
