Announcing the winners of the 2023 Story Challenge! is excited to share the winners of our 2023 Story Challenge, a writing contest designed in honor of National Reading Month. Throughout the month of March, we invited PreK-8th grade students to share their love of writing by submitting their original stories to our Story Challenge.

We received more than 100 imaginative pieces of writing from students across the world. It was exciting to see so many students embrace the spirit of the competition, develop their literacy skills, and celebrate the joys of storytelling.
