Back in April, we posted about a 6th grade student winning the national Create-A-Character contest by Scholastic. In addition to Kaylan winning the top prize, we just learned that the characters created by CDMS students Lauren Z., Rose F. and Connor A. were 3 of the 75 runners-up in the national contest!
Out of thousands of entries from across the country, 4 of the top 76 characters were created by Cairo-Durham students (that’s 5 percent of the best characters in the country)!
The runners-up received a writing journal and certificate from Scholastic’s Storyworks Magazine.
