Our panel of judges wanted to thank all who entered stories in the first Norwood Public Library Scary Story Contest. In their words: "We realize it takes a huge effort to create and compose a short story, and we all applaud you for your work. The judges deliberated over several evenings because the stories were so interesting and creative that it made choosing just one in each category difficult. We hope you will enter a story in the contest again next year!"

We were pleased to receive over 30 submissions from our local teens. Keep writing!
