The Pioneer Press put out the call for its annual Scary Stories contest and local third-, fourth- and fifth-graders did not disappoint.
More than 700 stories were turned in for the contest. Zombies, dolls and declarations of “The End... or is it?” were popular with the young authors. Artwork depicting haunted houses, ghosts and witches were also shared.
The stories are being judged by local authors J.T. Holden, Jack Fredrickson, Libby Fischer Hellmann and Alec Nevala-Lee.
