Remember when I wrote about Jane Anne’s poem, Ode to Books? Well, she submitted it to her school’s Imaginations contest, and she won 2nd prize in the Literature category. (I read the 1st place poem, and hers was definitely better. And that’s from my expertise as an English professor, not as a mom. Obviously.) There was an awards ceremony and she was awarded a medal and a cash prize ($10). Pretty sure I’ve never made money on any of my writing.
Here she is with Mrs. Smith, the principal. Way to go, JA!!
