CWP 2016 Recognition Night

On May 11, the Connecticut Writing Project celebrated the 28th Annual  Student Writers Recognition Night . The writing contest garnered 1700 submissions—200 more than for previous contests—from first through twelfth grades. Nearly 1000 teachers, family members, and friends filled the Jorgensen Auditorium to honor the students and hear them read their original work.  Author Linda Mullaly Hunt (One for the Murphys and Fish in a Tree) delivered the keynote speech.
