By West Kentucky Star Staff
CALVERT CITY - Calvert City has announced the latest winner of their Youth Voice writing contest.

The City's Youth Voice is a monthly writing contest for young authors between the age of 5 and 18. September 5 was the deadline for the contest, and the winner is Jackson Boone of Calvert City.

“We received 16 submissions this month and they were all wonderful,” said Blair Travis, Director of Marketing, Communications, and Business Development for Calvert City.

Judges receive the submissions with just the writing, without knowing the age of location of the author.

Boone grew up in Calvert City. He enjoys studying history and playing soccer. He is a junior at the Marshall County High School. 

The next deadline for the contest is October 1. All young writers are encouraged to submit their original work in any style of creative writing. 

Winners receive $50 and an ad in the Lake News with their published work. The contest is not limited to Calvert City residents. They encourage writers from across the region to submit their best work.
