The runners-up also shared their experiences:
"I really enjoyed writing the ending to The Run series. Just writing it itself was already a great experience for me, ending up as a finalist is an awesome bonus!" Elizabeth, 6th Grade
“I loved being able to recreate the experience that readers always feel when reading a good book, being able to imagine the story in your mind. I think reading a lot helped me to write this story, because it allowed me to include a lot of details and author's craft. So participating in this contest allowed me to share and express the ideas I always get from reading; I appreciate this contest and hope for many more like this!” Braulio, 5th Grade
“Being a runner-up/finalist taught me a valuable lesson. I entered the contest just like anyone else. I didn't expect to get this far. The lesson I learned is that your shot has just as much potential as anyone else's, so take it. Thank you for this amazing experience ReadWorks!” Cora, 7th Grade
