Seventh grader Madelyn Faltay placed first as an individual, Isabella Biedenbach placed second, and Marie Weller placed eleventh. Eighth grader Lexi Kerr placed third.
Seventh grader Emily Hallaman earned "Best of Round" honors for her story titled "The Cafe' Down the Street" and Madelyn Faltay received the Director's Choice Award for "The Sharpie Mishap."
We are so proud of our Viking Writers!
