Amazing Kids! 2017 Adventure Contest Winners

Congratulations to all of the kids who submitted stories to our AK! Adventure Contest. We were wowed by the creativity of stories that started with the line “I opened the book, and out slipped a photograph.”

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.

A HUGE “Thank You!” to our contest sponsors, Thinkfun and Footbubbles, who provided the Solitaire Chess game and Messi Footbubbles as the prizes for this contest. Also a giant thank you to the Traynor family who paid for the shipping of prizes. It is through these supporters that we are able to provide these contests that encourage youth to write. If you would like to help us bring additional contests, please donate today to Amazing Kids!

Also, thank you to our judges: Victoria, Allison, Sarina, and Stella. Judging takes a lot of time to analyze each piece and to give some feedback to each submitter. We are lucky to have such talented writers and editors on our volunteer Amazing Kids! Staff!
