Meet Superhero 'Gem Girl' in Elmira Girl's Winning Story
Caylee Hinman won 1st place in the Second Grade category in WSKG's local 2016 PBS KIDS Writers Contest. Caylee is 8 years old and lives in Elmira, NY with her mom and dad. She enjoys school, gardening, rocks and gems, building with Legos, baking, reading, and most of all writing stories! Caylee wrote her first book at the age of 3 titled “Happy Fall” inspired by the changing seasons. She has been writing books ever since. When Caylee grows up she is thinking of becoming an author
. Here's a Q&A we held with her!:
Are you working on any additional stories right now? I am currently in the thinking process for my next story that is going to be another story in the Gem Girl series.
Thank you for sharing this story with WSKG! How did you hear about the Contest? We heard about the WSKG writing contest through a friend in 2014 and I sent in a story for the 2015 contest and won 3 rd place.
Which part did you enjoy most -- writing the story or making drawings that accompanied the plot? I enjoyed writing the story the best because I like to use my imagination.
Is there anything else you'd like to share? I am planning to send in my story "Gem Girl Like Her Hot Dogs with Ketchup" to a publisher to become a published children's book.
