Young writers lauded for Reflections work

Youth who enter the Reflections fine arts contest show skill and aptitude beyond their age. PTAs across Madison have collected and reviewed submissions, and scores of students wrote poems, play and short stories for the literature category.

For primary grades, top honors went to second-graders. Anna-Grace Stauh at Columbia Elementary School won first place for “Love for Adopted Family.” Second-place winner Riley Ott at Madison Elementary School wrote “Donating Heart.” Alisha Tan at Mill Creek Elementary took third place for “The Magical Fireworks Day.” Honorable mentions went to Hailey Marsaw for “Magic in the Moonlight” and Jessica Henry for “The Adventures of Saving Girl” at Columbia.

Fifth-graders earned top spots in intermediate grades. The recognized writers were Ann Marshfield, first, “Can Be Anything,” Columbia; Zoo Sorensen, second, “By the Seaside,” Mill Creek; and Ranch Holcomb, third, “Wishes, Hopes,” Columbia. Honorable mentions went to Chandler Nguyen, “What Matters Is in the Inside,” West Madison Elementary School; Jonathan Byers, “A Day,” Mill Creek; and Jacob Murrah, “The Magic of a Moment,” Mill Creek.

In the middle grades division, Hannah Einhorn, a sixth-grader at Mill Creek, captured first place for “Seemingly Hopeless.” Earning other top honors were sixth-grader Avery Middleton, second, “Autumn,” Columbia; eighth-grader Lakyn Shepard at Discovery Middle School, third, “Was It Magic?”; and Danielle Warren, honorable mention, “In the Box,” Discovery.

For the senior division, senior Yvonne Bowman at Bob Jones High School won first place for “The Kid in the Lion Suit.” Julianna Head, a sophomore at Bob Jones, took second place with “The Funeral of Butterflies.” Third-place honors went to Gabrielle Thompson, a Bob Jones junior, for “Tomboy.” From James Clemens High School earning honorable mentions, sophomore Garrett Cobb wrote “Perfection Personified” and junior Margaret White wrote “How Do I Know?”
