Twenty-four Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District students in grades 5-8 were honored at the Yahara River Writers Top 10 Workshop at Union South on the UW-Madison campus on May 15.

The students created award-winning poems, editorials, cartoons or short stories, Advanced Learning specialist Ruth Frawley said. The students heard a keynote speech by an award-winning writer, had a chance to meet all the other students who were published in their category at their grade level and were able to have lunch at Union South before heading back to school. 

"A huge thank you to the teachers and parents who encourage students to write and to submit to this regional writing contest,'' Frawley said.

The following district students were honored:
