Nassakeag Elementary School sixth-grader Thania Canales has been selected as a winner of Scholastic’s Storyworks writing contest.  

Entrants were asked to write a letter from a character’s point of view.  Thania read the story, “Dad’s New Job” by Tommy Greenwald and then she wrote a letter from the character Henry’s perspective. The letter explained the lesson Henry learned from his dad. 

Thania was one of 10 winners selected in the contest and received a copy of “Dog Day Afternoon” by Tommy Greenwald.
