Becket Daniel Wins Writing Contest
Prince Avenue Christian School student Becket Daniel was among the winners of the 2017 Duke TIP Writing Contest. Becket is in the 5th grade and is the daughter of David and Melanie Daniel.
The Duke TIP Writing Contest is held annually for participants in the TIP 4th–6th Grade Talent Search, and this year students were asked to write a story about a dog that has escaped from an animal control officer, from the dog’s point of view. Becket’s story was selected as the first place winner in the 5th grade division from over eight hundred submissions.
The first place winners from each grade and the school that identified each student for participation in Duke TIP will receive $200; the second place winners and their schools will receive $100; third place winners and their schools will receive $50.
