Fruita middle schoolers top in short-story contest

Two Fruita Middle School students placed first and second in Rocky Mountain PBS’s annual short-story contest.

The contest featured students from around Colorado.

In the sixth-grade category, Torin Johnson received a first- place award for “A Soccer Ball’s Journey,” and Braydon Burtard claimed second place for “Wolf Boy.”

The students will be honored next year at an event featuring Lauren Myracle, a popular Colorado author and speaker.

Torin and Braydon also attended a daylong “Write to Publish” workshop in Denver earlier this month, where they learned how to do “digital storytelling” to create video stories based on their work.

The contest, now in its fourth year, is made possible by a grant from the Qwest Foundation.

The students’ stories can be found on the public television station’s website at rmpbs.org/storymakers.
