On May 20th, the State Library hosted an awards celebration to honor Oregon’s Letters About Literature contest winners. Local distinguished writer, Graham Salisbury, kicked off the successful event with a keynote address. Then, after receiving certificates and prizes, students read their letters to the audience of family members and special guests. The contest objective was for students to write to an author of their choice, conveying how the book they read changed them or the way they view the world. Congratulations to our state’s honorees:

First Place: Lucy Dyal, Lake Oswego

Level III (9th & 10th Grades)

There were also 116 semi-finalists, which included everyone who made it through the national screening but was not a winner, runner-up, or honorable mention in Oregon.

This annual reading and writing program is sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. Thanks very much to the Oregon Reading Association and three divisions of the Oregon Library Association – Children’s Services Division, Oregon Young Adult Network, and Oregon Association of School Libraries; all were local cosponsors who helped fund the prizes – $100 cash for winners, $50 cash for runners-up, $25 bookstore cards for honorable mentions, and $10 bookstore cards for semi-finalists. Honorees’ transcribed letters will soon be posted on the Letters About Literature web page: (http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/aboutlit.aspx).
