48th Annual Children's Writing Contest Winners


Hopkins has yet another reason to be proud of its students. Four of our students won awards at the Annual Children's Writing Contest. This contest, sponsored by The Friends of the Littleton Library and Museum, is put on to promote and recognize creative writing in children.

Students were judged based on originality, quality of expression, and skill in handling specific forms of writing. There were four different divisions: grades 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8; and two different categories: short story and poetry. We are all so proud of these amazing writers!

Congratulations to:

  • Samantha Luft -- Honorable Mention for her story, "Big, Bigger, Biggest"
  • Courtney Urbanek -- 2nd Place for her poem, "Footprints"
  • Sofia Millner Calvo -- 4th Place for her story, "The Dove"
  • Gabby Roche -- 1st Place for her story, "Nibbles, The Cat”
Congratulations Hopkins Artists
Congratulations to Hopkins Elementary student Gabby Roche, whose mixed media butterfly piece using colored chalk and oil pastel was selected by Beth Best and Mary McGlone of the Littleton Foundation as the perfect gift to Brian Vogt in appreciation of his work as the emcee at the LPS Spirit Celebration last Saturday night.  Gabby's art took center stage at this high profile gala as it was presented to Mr. Vogt for his generous work in support of Littleton Public Schools and this highly successful annual fund raiser.  Mr. Vogt, who is an artist himself, is the CEO of Denver Botanic Gardens and a Heritage High School Alum.  
Thanks to our art teacher Clare Kothlow for her support of Gabby and all of our Hopkins artists.  Beyond using Gabby's art as this special gift, the Littleton Foundation is inquiring about the possibility of having professional photoes taken of several Hopkins artists' work in order to utilize them as LPS Foundation notecards.  Once more, congratulations Hopkins Artists!   We are proud of you!
