5th grader wins writing contest
Tyler Palmer, a fifth-grader at Grand Coulee Dam Middle School, won the SHARP Kids writing contest with his story about a time machine.
Over the last eight weeks, students were asked to write a story on a topic picked for them. Entries were to follow the basics of creative writing — setting, character, problem and resolution — and judging included points for spelling, punctuation and creative thinking.
Palmer’s entry, the winner among 20, is to the right.
