When we teamed up with Gordon Korman for this year’s Write-a-Story fiction contest, we knew we were going to get some fantastic entries. But we were truly overwhelmed by the incredible talent and creativity of your students! We received more than 1,400 entries! And now we are thrilled to announce that the winner of Scope’s 2017/18 Write-a-Story Contest is:

Alexander S. from Zervas Elementary School in Waban, MA!


Here’s what Gordon had to say about Alexander’s story:

“This story is flat-out quality all around: a unique concept, a strong-voiced narrator, heart-pounding action, taut, believable dialogue, and plenty of surprises. Every time I thought I had this one figured out, Alexander would throw me another twist. It’s an awesome read, which is especially impressive coming from the youngest of the finalists. Congratulations, Alexander!”

You can read Alexander’s thrilling story “NXTGen Evolution” here.

Check out the Q&A that I did with Alexander here.

Congratulations to Alexander! And congratulations to all the finalists and honorable mentions! Make sure to look out for details in the fall about next year’s Write-a-Story Contest.
