5th Grade Story Contest

For 30 years, the Berkeley Branch held a story contest for Bay Area Fifth Graders.

We read thousands upon thousands of stories, blindly judged by our members, all of whom are writers. We honored ten students each year for writing beautifully, excellently, imaginatively, and emotionally, with an awards ceremony, and published the winners on our website. Some of them won money! But all of the entries were winners, since creativity and love of writing are also their own rewards.

We are SO SORRY, fifth graders, that we are unable to continue the contest! You are awesome! Keep writing!

—The CWC Board
