Prior to the competition, we announced that our visiting author, Megan Rix, would name one of the characters in her upcoming book after the overall winner. However, after spending time in our school, Megan decided to name four characters in her upcoming book after our four winners! We will soon see Joshua, Harry, Robin and Olivia named as characters in Megan’s upcoming book about the civil rights movement due out in the autumn. Congratulations to our winners!
