North Woods Kids Reception and Awards Ceremony

Kids and their families and friends are invited to the North Woods Kids reception and awards ceremony from 6:30 to 7:30 p.mThursday at the Community Arts Center located at 126 Quincy Street, Hancock.

Nearly 200 submissions of art and writing composed by North Woods kids (ages 5 to 19) from nine Western Upper Peninsula schools will be displayed and celebrated. Judges are busy selecting first place, honorable mention and best in show winners (winners will be notified by tomorrow–maybe sooner!).

A special honor and surprise: Aimee Bissonette, author of picture book “Northwoods Girl,” will be an honored guest; and children will have the chance to visit with Aimee once again during the reception. Aimee wants all the children to know how very excited she is to reconnect with Copper Country children after visiting with them earlier this fall.

Live dulcimer music performed by Clare Zuraw performed and kid-friendly treats will be served. This ceremony is co-sponsored by the Copper Country Reading Council, the CC Arts Council and Michigan Tech’s English Education Program.
