A longtime supporter of Read Up, Emrys partnered with them this year to sponsor a writing contest called Word Up for students aged 10 – 18. We were very pleased to get close to a hundred submissions, a nice response to a first-time contest that was announced just a couple months before the deadline. We are very happy to announce this year’s finalists.
