Students in 8th grade entered the Letters About Literature contest this winter. Students are asked to read a book, poem or speech and write to the author (living or dead) about how the book affected them personally. Letters are judged on state and national levels.

39, 000 letters were submitted across the U.S., and 1,618 Iowa students submitted entries. The national committee selected 163 letters to be returned to Iowa for judging. The winners, finalists, and semifinalists were selected. 

Students recognized:

  • Cecilia Oberdoerster--finalist
  • Lillian Schmidt--finalist
  • Amelia Spahn--finalist
  • Rebecca May--finalist
  • Sofia Small--semifinalist
  • Brooke Healey--semifinalist
  • Riley O'Donnell--semifinalist
