In preparation for our attendance at the Owensboro Dance Theater's production of The Little Mermaid, the students were challenged to enter a writing contest. Their directions were to introduce a new character, a four armed starfish, to the story, describe how the starfish lost its arm, and tell how the starfish and Ariel became friends!
These kiddos took the challenge and ran with it! Almost every third grader brainstormed, wrote, edited, revised, and published a story in hopes of winning first, second, third, or honorable mention!
A few days before the performance, we learned that TREY HINTON won second place and BLAKE STRACENER won third place in the contest! The boys were introduced before the performance. Each boy was awarded a certificate, tshirt, AND a cash prize!
