Storyworks Winner

Congratulations to Lexington Elementary fifth-grader Hayden Sennett who recently announced as the April/May 2016 issue of Storyworks’ contest entitled, “Smog Contest.”  Hayden and nine other students around the U.S. were chosen from thousands of students who enter the monthly writing contests.  This particular contest from the story, “Killer Smog” asked elementary students to write a persuasive letter to an elected official describing the importance of clean air using details from the story to support their claims. 

Hayden and the rest of his classmates are given the challenge to enter these monthly contests as a part of Mrs. Michelle Hayes’ RTI Enrichment Reading Class.  After being asked to come up with a planner, rough draft, and final draft, Hayden’s work was chosen by his fourth grade literacy teacher, Mrs. Michelle Hayes, as being the best of the class and the story that would be submitted.  After waiting all summer, Mrs. Hayes and Hayden just recently found out about being chosen. 

The Storyworks’ editors commented the following about Hayden’s story saying, “Your well-written letter to an elected official describing the importance of clean air was very convincing. We loved reading all the details you included from the “The Killer Smog” story to support your claims.  Well done!”  Hayden received a letter and a copy of the book Heroes of the Environment by Harriet Rohmer as his prize.   We are proud of you Hayden!
