St. Patrick’s Day Writing Contest for Elementary Students

Congratulations to Zoe, who won the recent Titanic Writing Contest.

Her mom said:


Thank you for this information about the Titanic writing contest. As soon as we saw this post, my daughter, Zoe, entered, and she was just notified of winning first prize! Our family really needs this little two night getaway right now, and it’s a real blessing for us! Also, Zoe dreams of being a published author, so she is thrilled to win first place and have her story published on the Titanic website. Thanks again!




I was inspired by Zoe’s success, and also by the Second Grade Students in Mrs. Guyre’s classroom to offer a writing contest for younger students!
