And the Winner of Scope's Write-a-Story Contest Is . . .



Drumroll please!


When we launched our first Write-a-Story fiction contest asking students to create a story around a first line written by author Lisa Yee, we didn't know what to expect. But Lisa and all of us here at Scope have been positively overwhelmed by the incredible talent and creativity of your students. After receiving nearly 2,000 entries, we are thrilled to announce that the winner of Scope's first Write-a-Story Contest is:


Hannah S. from Brown Summit Middle School in Browns Summit, North Carolina!




Here is what Lisa said about Hannah's story:

Hannah's story has a terrific second line, plus lots of mystery and intrigue, and a heartwarming ending.

You can read Hannah's wonderful story "Almost Happy Ending" here.


Congratulations to Hannah! And congratulations to all the finalists! Make sure to look out for details in the fall about next year's Write-a-Story Contest.
