Three Racine Christian students win literary awards

Three Racine Christian School students recently won literary awards for writing and illustrating their own books. The contest was sponsored by the Pi Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Literary Competition Committee. 

Evan Schlicht’s book, The Biggest Wrong Turn Ever, and Erika Groen’s, The Race for Horses, were chosen to be sent to the state competition, where Evan placed second.  Annie Rhoads’s book, Just About 5-Minutes, was chosen to receive a local award. All three were in Anna Stavlo’s third grade class.

Racine Christian Principal Dave Van Swol said, "These three students did outstanding work. Who knows when we will see an RCS student go on to write the Great American Novel?”
