2017 Writer To Writer Challenge :: Award Presentation :: April 14

2017 Writer To Writer Challenge !

SCLLN is excited to announce the winners and runners-up for the 2017 Writer to Writer Challenge !

We had a great response—86 entries—and the quality of the letters was amazing!  We are so proud of all of the learners who wrote letters.  Each letter was a beautiful expression of the learner’s thoughts and feelings.  The ones selected as winners and runners-up most closely met the contest criteria, but as one coordinator said, every letter had its own “pizzazz.” 

Please join SCLLN’s
adult learners, tutors and coordinators at the upcoming 
to be held at the Buena Park Holiday Inn on Saturday, April 14th.

We hope you will join us for the Writer to Writer lunch, if not for the entire conference, and listen as the winner from each category reads their amazing letter!

The winners and runners-up will each receive a cash prize and a certificate, and all letter writers will receive a certificate of participation.  We encourage all coordinators to invite and sponsor all of your writers and their tutors for this special event.  The registration fees are only $15 for learners and $35 for tutors/staff (early bird, SCLLN member) and are an appropriate use of CLLS grant funding.  Inviting your Writer to Writer participants would be an excellent way to recognize our writers and their tutors.  Congratulations to all of our letter writers!
