CHS Lower School Student Wins Literary Prize

CHS lower school student Keane has been announced as a winner of the 2020 Trumbull Library Literary Competition for Creative Writing.  

Keane originally wrote his short story, “Snow White Reversed,” as an assignment in Mrs. Marshall’s class.  His stood out as “clever, creative, witty, and all around amazing,” according to Mrs. Marshall.

“When I saw this competition, I was thinking of what I should write. I remembered my story and thought it would be great for this competition, so I added more to it, asked Mrs. Marshall to proofread it, and sent it in,” says Keane.

Entries in the competition were judged anonymously by a distinguished group of authors, educators and editors, based on originality and quality of expression.

In addition to a cash prize, Keane’s story will be published in PenWorks, an annual literary magazine.

Congratulations, Keane!

That is so awesome Keane! Remember us when your famous, lol. Very proud of you. That you did this all by yourself, with no influence from mom or dad, is something you should be proud of also.
