Monroe Middle School

Bound for Success - 2017 Rising Young Authors

Join the Campbell Union School District community in celebrating 12 talented student authors at the District’s 15th Annual Rising Young Authors awards, October 18, 2017, at 7 p.m., at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore on Stevens Creek Blvd., in San Jose.

The Rising Young Authors are a select group of students whose short stories, essays, research papers and poems were among hundreds entered in the District’s annual Writing Faire last May. After the Writing Faire, judges review eligible entries to select one Author of the Year per school to receive the Rising Young Author award in the fall.

The student authors will speak to the audience about their award-winning books and, later, they will autograph copies for fans who bring copies with them to the event. 

We have three students from Monroe who will be honored for their work:
