Children write award-winning short stories

Staff reports

Thirty-seven children submitted short stories to the short story contest the Friends of Black Mountain put on this year, "all of which were very good," said program chair Merle Arcand.

"Our panel of six impartial judges read and scored each story based on good sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, interesting story and character development," she said. Here are the winners

Olive Gruver tied for second place in the 12 and under category.
Kayla McClain won first plays in the 13-17 age group.
Kimberly McClain won first place in the 12 and under age range.
Emma Fee-Prince tied for second place in the 12 and under category.
