Short story contest — Third place winners
After weeks of reading and evaluating the crack team of Junior Dispatch literary judges have made their selections on the best stories submitted in our “It Came From Beyond!” short story contest, which Junior Dispatch offered with the help of the York Emporium and the York County Libraries.
We received more than 100 entries and now we are announcing the third place winners in each of our age categories. First and second place winners will be announced Wednesday and Thursday.

8 to 12 AGE GROUP
Awarded to Brandon Secret, 11, of Jacobus for the story titled “A Silver Ball.” Read the story here about a very unique sort of alien scout.
7 and YOUNGER AGE GROUP
