Seneca 5th Grade Students to attend Young Authors' Festival

For the past 26 years, students in Marlys Oldenburg's Language class have written and illustrated their own children's book as part of a unit on creative writing. She has chosen students to represent Seneca at 
the Authors’ Festival held at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse where she continues to be a volunteer during the conference. 
This year, over 400 area youth ranging in age from kindergarten through grade eight will attend this conference on April 23, 2016. 
The following students will be attending:  Anna Allen, Jorja Clark, Kendra Chambers, Ella Gran, Ella Greene, Bridget Hagensick, Halle Lenzendorf, Hunter O’ Connell, Lindsey Sime, and Brennan Wallin. 
They will have the opportunity to listen to Wisconsin author Miranda Paul who has written numerous books and was a presenter at the Young Reader’s Center in Washington, D. C. Each student will either share their 
book or attend a writing session during a small group session.
