Southern California Library Literacy Network - SCLLN
Writer to Writer Challenge - 2013
The Southern California Library Literacy Network is excited to announce the winners and runners-up for the 2013 Writer to Writer Challenge! We received a large response—45 entries—and the quality of the letters was amazing! We are so proud of all of the learners who wrote letters. We are grateful to the coordinators and learner judging panels at Huntington Beach Public Library, National City Public Library, Newport Beach Central Public Library, and Carlsbad City Library for donating their time to judge the letters.
Please join us at the Southern California Library Literacy Network Literacy Conference at the Holiday Inn, Buena Park, on Saturday, March 8, where the winners will be recognized during the lunch program. The winners and runners-up will each receive a cash prize and a certificate, and may attend the conference at our expense but they must pre-register. All letter writers will receive a certificate of participation.
Congratulations to everyone who entered the 2013 Writer to Writer Challenge!
