Each year for the past twenty-two years, Circle Benton Elementary (Benton, KS) sponsors a writing and art contest for third through sixth grade students. The theme for the 2021-22 school year was sports and hobbies. Awards are given to the children with the top entries in prose, poetry, and art for each grade. The winners of the first through third places and honorable mention entries are recognized at an assembly with certificates and a booklet containing their entry. After the awards are presented, winners autograph books for the judges and their friends. Cynthia Ross and Sandee Taylor, Kansas Authors Club District 5 members, have judged the contest multiple years. This year Cynthia judged the poetry category for sixth grade and Sandee judged fourth grade poetry.
