With a canopy of red umbrellas provided by Travelers Insurance suspended over the main stage Sunday afternoon, 70 talented young WITS writers wowed the crowd.  Students from across Houston from grades K – 12 astonished the audience, as they read their best work of the school year. Keynote speaker Ada Edwards praised the students for their achievements to an audience of family members, WITS supporters, and passersby.

WITS celebrated the students who participated in our Young Writers Reading on May 2, 2010, at Discovery Green.  The student work was selected from a juried competition of 16,000 students in WITS classrooms, community centers, and hospital sites and 93 winners were featured in our yearly anthology, Blooms. Copies of the book can be purchased for 10$ which includes shipping and handling. Congratulations to the following students:
