Genny, a member of the Young Writers' Club of North Vancouver, won first prize in the Federation of BC Writers Young BC Writers Contest . The results haven't been posted to the BCFW's site yet but Genny received an email yesterday announcing the good news. Soon her story, Caitlyn's Book, should appear as the winner of the $400 scholarship.
This was Genny's first competition and she is only in grade 8. She was competing against much older and more experienced writers.
Talent & hard work were on her side.
I’m sure this is the first of many writing achievements for Genny.
