Infant Jesus of Prague School sends 2 to 38th Annual Illinois Statewide Young Authors’ Conference

 

Infant Jesus of Prague School Young Authors’ Award winners, 3rd grader, David Ludington and 7th grader, Vernell Johnson wrote sprawling stories. Their tales catapulted them to the state-wide conference on May 19, 2012. The purpose of the Annual Illinois Statewide Young Authors’ Conference was to support classroom teachers in their efforts to encourage and improve students’ abilities in writing, reading, listening, and sharing and to recognize the accomplishments of young authors.

During a school-wide celebration of authorship at IJP School on May 2, 2012, principal, Mr. Dan Smith dictated and praised. He presented awards to exceptional young authors. A structured, yet progressive Language Arts curriculum drove students’ mechanics. The premise of Ludington’s story, “The Man Who Could See Sound,” was a sensing device for the blind. 7th grader, Vernell Johnson claimed inspiration for his creation, “Broken Nations.”
