Congratulations to freshman Shay Straughn who placed 3rd in the Marshall County Young Writers Contest for grades 9 & 10. The West Virginia Young Writers Contest encourages students to submit writing for judging, first at the school, and then the county level. Submissions can be on any topic and genre as long as the essays are completed during the school year. This year, the freshmen composed short scary stories.
