The Pueblo City-County Library District, in cooperation with the Friends of the Library, is pleased to annouce the winners of the 21st Annual Scary Story Contest. Budding writers, from second grade to adult, were invited to enter the creative writing contest. Mysterious, suspenseful or humorous scary tales of a non-violent nature were judged by the Friends of the Library.

The 530 entries were judged for characterization, plot, description, dialog, setting, theme and originality. All participants received a certificate of recognition, and the winners received a puppet and a gift certificate to Books Again, the Friends of the Library’s used book store.

The judges were Doris Kester, Kathy Mauro, Laura Vance, and Sherry Wingo.

The library wishes to thank the many teachers who supported the creative writing experience by having their students enter the contest.
