Yahara River Writers' Competition

On Friday, March 6, Mrs. Schultz announced the winners from her 8th grade ELA Yahara River Writers contest entries. She shared the results as part of the middle school Student-of-the-Month recognition. Those students listed below were invited to an awards ceremony on Tuesday, May 12, originally scheduled at the Memorial Union in Madison, but instead held virtually. The results can be viewed at this link. Congratulations to these outstanding Wildcat artists and writers who were recognized for their cartoons, editorials, and short stories!
