Calvert City’s Youth Voice is a monthly writing contest developed for young authors between the age of 5 and 18. The first of April was the deadline for entries and the winner is Cameron Sullivan of Paducah, Kentucky.
Calvert Area Development Association used a rubric judging system to choose the April winner. “We received 50 submissions and they were all wonderful,” said Blair Travis, Director of Marketing, Communications, and Business Development for Calvert City. Judges received the submissions with just the writings. They did not know how old the author was or where they were located.
Sullivan is 13 years old and enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing video games, and playing soccer and basketball.
The next deadline for the monthly writing contest is May 1. Young writers are encouraged to submit original work in any style of creative writing. One winner will be awarded monthly.
Monthly winners will receive $50 and an ad in the Lake News with their published work. The deadline to submit work will be on the 1st of each month. This contest is not limited to Calvert City residents. We encourage writers from across the region to submit their original work.
