Lee’s Summit R-7 students from kindergarten through third grade were honored for their writing and artwork at the district’s Young Authors Primary Conference. The event was held April 11 at Underwood Elementary.
Approximately 150 students were honored for their writing and artwork. A special guest at the event was Jason Sivewright, author, and Kevin and Kristin Howdeshell, illustrators, for “The Night the World Turned Royal Blue” and “The Year a Royal Dream Came True.”
The annual event is coordinated by the Lee’s Summit Reading Council for elementary students in all R-7 School District schools. Underwood Elementary is organizing and hosting the event this year.
