Once again the youth of Richmond Hill have inspired us with their carefully crafted stories. These stories have shown that our young writers possess both the vision and the determination required for creative writing. We are encouraged to see the continued interest in this contest in this its 3rd year; and, we congratulate all who entered on a job well done. Our judges have given of their time and have chosen the best entries in the various age groups. These winning submissions are printed here.
