Grand County Library District announces Scary Stories Contest

Students in kindergarten through 8th grades are encouraged to write a short story to scare readers to fright.

Prizes will be given to those who dare win. So let the writing begin!

The Grand County Library District is conducting its 24th annual Scary Story Contest for elementary students, K-5th Grades, and its Vampire Tales Contest for middle school students, 6th-8th grades. This is a fun activity designed to help children develop literacy skills and channel their creative imaginations.

Stories must be 100 to 500 words for K-5th grades and 400-500 words for 6th-8th grades. Entry forms are available at your local library or on the Grand County Library District’s website, (Younger students are encouraged to obtain parental assistance.)

Stories may be submitted on the website, or at your local branch library. Deadline for stories is Friday, Oct. 14.

Every student who submits a story will receive a creepy prize and is invited to attend a FREE and entertaining Halloween party (costumes optional). Awards and fun incentives will be given to the most talented authors from each grade.

Call your local library, or visit for further information.

Winning stories from each grade level will be printed in the Sky-Hi News beginning Friday, Oct. 21.
