Special Edition of Tenth News Honors Young Authors


Please follow this link to our Fifth Annual Special Literary Edition of the Tenth News. Read prize-winning poetry and short prose works written by high school students in Waukegan, Zion, and North Chicago.  These students were honored last spring at the Tenth Dems Community Connection’s Fifth Annual Poetry and Prose Competition and Awards Ceremony.  Their works were chosen from among several hundred submissions for recognition and cash prizes by our panel of judges, all of whom are published authors.  You will be delighted and moved by the talent of these young people.
