The Anne Arundel County Reading Council recently recognized 54 students—including four from Annapolis schools—for their talents as storytellers, poets and essayists. The council received more than 1,000 entries.
The four winners from Annapolis schools included:
- Sophia Edillon, third-grader at Hillsmere Elementary, First Place short story
- Emma Miller, fifth-grader at St. Martin's Lutheran, Second Place short story
- Claire Auth, sixth-grader at Bates Middle, Third Place short story
- Megan Jackson, seventh-grader Bates Middle, Third Place short story
The 22 first- and second-place entries will go on to be judged at the state level.
Anne Arundel County honored the high school writers at a reception on Thursday, and the younger writers will be honored in April.
