LITERARY ALERT: We are thrilled to announce that GR4's Linda Amrhein has won third place in the annual Bookshop Santa Cruz Young Writer's Contest with The Golden Kiki, a fantasy about a young girl's adventures in Hawaii. Linda's peer editor for Kiki was classmate Leah Guglin. The Young Writer's Contest is a prestigious regional contest that draws hundreds of entries from young authors, ages 6-17. Entries are judged by age groups. Linda's winning entry will be published in a collection with other winners and she will be reading her story on the radio. It will also, of course, be published later this school year in Old Orchard's fourth annual book of student writing, Tales of the Orchard. Congrats, Linda!
