Authors recognized across the county

Congratulations to our elementary and middle school students who contributed stories to the Nicholas Spennato Young Authors' Project, which is sponsored by the Delaware County Reading Council and the Delaware County Intermediate Unit. Penn-Delco School District was honored with 25 of the 102 winning selections from the approximately 600 entries from private and public schools across the county.

We appreciate the support of our principals, reading specialists and ELA teachers who guided our students through the entry process. A special ceremony for all winners and their families will be held at Northley Middle School on May 15.
