2018 Waldport Library Young Writers' Competition

2018 Waldport Library Young Writers' Competition

The 2018 Young Writers’ Competition has begun!!


This year’s theme is Libraries Rock!!


The Waldport Library 2018 Young Writers’ Competition is in memory and thanks to Waldport resident Raymond “Butch” Grady. Butch, a successful Waldport family man and businessman, quietly spent   thousands of hours helping adults and youth to increase literacy in south Lincoln County. He worked with the Seashore Family Literacy Center and the Lincoln County School District to do all he could to help young people in south Lincoln County succeed through literacy. This help extended to the Waldport Library Young Writers’ Competition in 2017. Butch Grady exemplified what it means to be a community champion of literacy.
