Abigail Helser, a Wisconsin 3rd grader, has won the national Reading Rainbow Young Writers and Illustrators contest in her grade level with her autobiographical submission “Finding Grandpa.”
This year, nearly 800 Wisconsin children in kindergarten through third grade submitted their originally written and illustrated stories for judging in the contest. Local first-place winners in each grade are submitted to the national competition. At Wisconsin Public Television’s newly designed kids page, you can view narrated slide shows of all the state winners. Later this month, the national Reading Rainbow site will feature Abigail’s story.
Way to go, kids!
