North Branch students receive writing awards

Two students from North Branch School have received awards in the annual Writer’s Eye contest. Nathan Vance, a 3rd grader, won First Prize in the 3rd-5th grade category. Eleanor Hawkes, a 4th grader, won Third Prize in the same category. Big congratulations to both of them! Both Nathan’s and Eleanor’s stories will be published in a Writer’s Eye anthology. Nathan is scheduled to read his story at the awards ceremony at UVA on March 21. The Writer’s Eye website states: “Contestants submitted original writings inspired by one of 20 pieces selected from the museum’s permanent collection and visiting exhibitions. After conducting tours for more than 2,300 students from local and regional schools, the museum received more than 1,000 entries in the categories of poetry and prose.”
