Calvert Area Development Association used a rubric judging system to choose the August winner. Judges received the submissions with just the writings. They did not know how old the author was or where they were located.
Addyson enjoys spending her time reading and writing. She is sixteen years old and a senior in high school. She is homeschooled, living in Berea, Kentucky. Her favorite subjects are English, creative writing, and psychology.
The next deadline for the monthly writing contest is September 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 first of each month. This contest is not limited to Calvert City residents. We encourage writers from across the region to submit their original work.
