In case you missed this special evening (or even if you attended!) …

2017 Literary Edition


Our 7th Annual Poetry and Prose Contest Awards Night was a special evening–area high school students read their original works on the theme of Service, and they were joined at the microphone by some of the professional writers who judged the contest. These young writers were amazing! See for yourself–this special edition of Tenth News has all 12 award-winning poems, essays, and stories, as well as a photo album from the event.

There’s a good chance you’ll be moved by the talent and sensitivity of the young students from North Chicago, Waukegan, and Zion who participated in this year’s contest.
