The Bertie, a short-story contest for 11-13 year olds, was founded by Mafia member, Lisa Lewis Tyre. The contest was named after Bertie, a grandmother, who is one of the most beloved characters in her book, LAST IN A LONG LINE OF REBELS.
All of the entries were amazing which made judging very difficult, but we managed to reach a consensus. Without further ado, the winners of The Bertie are –
Beyond Reality, by Brandon Bell ($250.00 dollars)
Faces on the Ceiling, by Rosie Curtis ($150.00 dollars)
The Basement, by Maddie Cargile ($100.00 dollars)
