Sen. Moore Congratulates Upton’s Julia KIlroy on Letters About Literature Award

Saturday, April 30, 2016

 

Senator Michael Moore welcomed the Kilroy family from Upton to the State House this week to recognized the accomplishments of Julia Kilroy, who received an honor award for her participation in the 2016 Letters About Literature competition. 

“This accomplishment would not be possible without a considerable investment of time and effort. I congratulate Julia on receiving this recognition and extend my wishes for her continued success throughout her academic career,” said Moore.   

Letters About Literature is a reading and writing contest for students in grades 4-12. Students are asked to read a book, poem or speech and write to the author (living or dead) about how the book affected them. Letters are entered by tens of thousands of students from across the country and are judged on a state and national level each year. 

Julia Kilroy is an 8th grade student at the Whitinsville  Christian School, submitted a letter to Ben Carson after reading his autobiography Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. 

As an honor award recipient, Julia's letter ranked within the top 1 to 2% of submissions.
