Congratulations to Makayla Griffin, 8th grade, for winning the American Association of Christian School Junior High Short Story Contest. Students qualify for this award by first winning at the state level. Makayla was chosen to represent the Garden State Association of Christian Schools Short Story Contest. Winners are then sent to the national competition. Makayla received a plaque to acknowledge her win.

Makayla loves to write. She is often seen with a pencil and journal in her hand. A few years ago she authored a short story about a cat that lived on their farm.
