Two Sentence Story Contest

Marathon County Public Library is pleased to announce the winners of the 2 Sentence Story Contest held this spring. The winning stories were chosen by popular vote during the first week of May, and they’ve been given illustrations by MCPL staff!

The winning story in the 9–12 age group was written by Norah Wolken, age 9.

But he wasn’t just an average random potato, for one day he would save the world from your average evil donut.

The winning story in the 13-18 age group was written by Xong Lee, age 18.

I recently learned Morse code.

But why does the rain keep telling me to run?

Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all who submitted and voted in the contest!
