6th-grade authors win library contest

Four Maple Point 6th-grade students won awards in the the 2017 Book Writing Contest sponsored by the Southampton Free Library on May 1. They received their awards at an author celebration, which was held at the library on Street Road in Southampton. 

The contest was open to all Bucks County students in grades 1-12. Winners have the opportunity to have their books professionally bound, and some books will be added to the library's permanent collection.


The four are all students in Theresa Johnson's 6th grade English class.

First Place: Rebecca Miatselitsa and Jayden Williams, who co-wrote "The Endless Dream"


Third Place: Julia Ponticiello and Kaitlyn Balko, who co-wrote "The Not So Friendly Friendship"
