The Leominster Public Library is honored to
have hosted an essay contest for local high school students
in conjunction with Fitchburg State University's Community
Read of The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan.
This is the second time that we have been able to run this
program and are so proud of all of the students and grateful
for their contributions.
All of the
submissions for this year's contest were on the theme of
"Women Making A Difference". Students were asked to
write or make a video about a woman who has profoundly
impacted their life. Written entries were judged on
originality, interest, vocabulary, and grammar. Video
entries were judged on originality of work, creativity, and
clarity of message. The contest winners are listed below
with links to their winning entries.
First Place Winner - Michaela W.
Second Place Winner - Renee D.
Third Place Winner - Jasmin C.
Honorable Mention - Macey B.

Atomic City" by Denise Kiernan.
