Congratulations to Hazel Kuzell, winner of the cover art contest for the spooky short story collection. The book is printed and available in the library!
First prize: Mira Ward (above)
Second prize: Stella Robichaud
Third prize: Sophie Kranenborg
A note from the judges: All of the submitted short stories were amazing! It was so difficult to choose a winner that we ended up choosing a top 3, deciding that all three deserved recognition. However, because all the stories were so spooky, scary, and well-written, we felt that every story deserved to be read by any MPC student who wished to read it. Thus, here is a compilation of all 17 submitted spooky short stories written by MPC students ranging from grade 9 to 12.
Now we are having a contest for the cover page for the short story collection. It should by 8.5×11, vertical, in any medium, and have the title “Spooky Stories of MPC” You can hand your submission in person at the library or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The library is hosting a short story contest just in time for Halloween. We are looking for a max of 1000 words, handed in by next Friday, Oct. 29.

You can upload your story here: Short Story Contest form or drop off a printed copy to Ms Green in the library.
