Fourteen LPMS students are semi-finalists in a national literature contest.
Fourteen Liberty Park Middle School sixth graders were chosen as state semi-finalists as part of the Letters About Literature Contest.
Letters About Literature is a reading and writing contest for students in grades 4-12. Students are asked to read a book, poem or speech and write to that author (living or dead) about how the book affected them personally. The letters are judged on state and national levels.
The LPMS students are Audrey Bayne, Victoria Bentley, Matt Coleman, Julie Dixon, Harrison Downes, Eigen Escario, Lexi Green, Anne Claire Miller, Kayla Miller, Kellyn Murch, Leighton Reese, Ella Russell, Rachel Simms and Emily Teel. The students have been invited to attend an awards ceremony at the University of Alabama.
Their letters will go through another round of judging and a first, second and third place winner will be named at the state level. The first place state winner's letter will then compete in the national competition. This contest is sponsored by Center for the Book in The Library of Congress and Affiliate State Center for the Book organizations.
