Congratulations to the Youth Writing Competition Winners!
The Virginia Beach SPCA and the Muse Writers Center partnered up for a writing competition focused on compassion. Youth ages 7-12 were invited to submit a short story or song that brings the concept of compassion to life. We had a great turnout, and we should all be at ease knowing that we have so many compassionate and creative young minds out there who will undoubtedly make our world a better place.
And the winners are…
- First Place: Louise (age 9) with her piece The Election
- Second Place: Kennedy (age 8) with her piece My Story of Being a Big Sister
- Third Place: Jackson (age 8) with his piece Senses of Compassion
