Congratulations, short story writers! Now it’s the artists’ turn…

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.
