SCLLN is excited to announce the winners and runners-up for the 2016 Writer to Writer Challenge! We had a great response—85 entries—and the quality of the letters was amazing! We are so proud of all of the learners who wrote letters. Every letter was a beautiful expression of the learners’ thoughts and feelings.
Please join other writers, tutors, coordinators and their guests, as well as our State Librarian Greg Lucas, at a wonderful brunch to be held Saturday, February 25, at 10:30 a.m. at the Radisson Hotel in Newport Beach. The winners and runners-up will each receive a cash prize and a certificate, and all letter writers will receive a certificate of participation.
Congratulations to all of our letter writers!
