Jordan Bernal, Vice President of the Tri-Valley Writers branch of the California Writers Club presented the winners of the High School Writing Contest with their awards.
Several winning students who attended read their poems and short stories.

Neva Hodges and I were judges for the short stories. We were impressed not only with the students’ writing skills, but with the topics they choose: organ transplant, abuse, ecology, bullying, poverty, anorexia, and many more.
