Young Authors Competition (YAC)

Harvest’s yearly Young Authors Competition (YAC) has come to a close with awards going to a few YAC veterans and a few new faces as well. We are proud of our students for pushing themselves through short story, essay, and poetry writing. Some never knew they enjoyed writing or were good at writing fiction until they began crafting their pieces for the contest.

Special thanks to Ahyen Madrid (Faith Bookstore) and May Camacho (BestSellers) for sponsoring our contest another year. We are grateful to these former school parents for their continued desire to invest in our current and future students. See the Contest Winners and the Overall Winning Works below.
