In our September issue, we asked kids to tell us about what they’re excited about as they begin a new school year. Below, find the winning entries. Amelia and Cristo each receive a $25 gift certificate to Crow Bookshop in Burlington.

Amelia VanDriesche, 12, Burlington
  Out in the sun

Cristo Buckley, 12, Manchester
Going back to school,
So I won’t grow old and be a fool,
I got to see all my friends,
But I couldn’t choose my favorite,
I have so many of them,
I love my new teachers,
They are the best school leaders.

Find the latest writing prompt in the Just For Kids Section of our October Innovation Issue. The deadline is Monday, October 15. Happy writing!

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.

Keep up with us Seven Days a week!
