Broward County (FL) Students Lauded in Mystery Writing Competition

Students from Broward County (FL) public schools got a special treat on a recent evening with writing tips from an expert, as reported by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Daniel Keyes, who wrote the best-selling, award-winning novel Flowers for Algernon, gave the pointers at the Kids Love a Mystery Florida Eddie Awards 2006.

The second annual awards were presented by the Mystery Writers of America Florida Chapter and Broward County Public Schools in the Performing Arts Center of Dillard High in Fort Lauderdale.

More than 200 Broward students competed by writing mystery stories, which were judged by members of the Mystery Writers of America. There were two categories: children (grades K-6) and young adult (grades 7-12).

The Hidden Staircase Mystery Books offers its congratulations to all participants and the winners! Read the entire article here which includes a list of the winners.
