Congrats Celeste on earning the 2-15 Bradbury Award!
August 5, 2056 is the title of the futuristic, high tech short story that won eighth grader Celeste Xu the 2015 Bradbury Award. Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451 and many other pieces of literature has inspired generations of readers. The annual Bradbury Contest invites students to submit original short stories, poems, or visual art based on a theme-related genre of author Ray Bradbury. Celeste wrote several stories, but chose one that closely mirrored Bradbury's writing style. Thank you to D102 teachers for individualizing learning and looking for opportunities to further challenge students.
