Congratulations to all of the kids who submitted stories to our Summer Fiction Writing Contest – Best Homework Excuse Ever! We had an extraordinary pool of entrants for this contest with creative, thoughtful, and entertaining stories. All of you are winners for creating a piece and having the courage to submit it to us for judging. We did have to pick the best of the entries, however, and we are proud to present you with these stories that stood out to us for their creativity, entertainment value, and superb writing. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as we did.
