Frankenstorm Sandy arrived to NJ. The winds howled for hours over the rooftops of Fairfield. Power went down, the trees flew in the air like birds, but that didn’t stop the wonderfully bright children of Fairfield from entering a Halloween story writing contest for the Fairfield Library. Forty-four children from grades 3rd-5th entered the contest, can you believe it? The stories were impressive. Our town has some seriously talented writers! The spooky stories entered for the contest ranged from gory to romantically strange (Dracula’s Marriage).
Here are our winners, one per grade and only one runner up. For the sake of keeping the stories authentic they will be typed as they were written. Happy Halloween!
