Each year, the ESU holds a creative writing competition for high school students in the Coachella Valley. This year we had over 100 submissions – on the topic of "Tomorrow is not promised."
The students' approaches varied widely. Some wrote formal essays, others submitted short stories. The judging was "blind"; the readers did not know the names of the students or their schools or their teachers. So we were surprised when the three winners were all from the same school – Coachella Valley High School – and from the same teacher – Simon Moore.
And the winners are:
Congratulations to each of our winners! If you would like to read their wonderful stories, you will find them attached to this newsletter
