Wayne County Public Schools published an online book featuring student writing and artwork, officials announced last week.
Every school is represented in the annual Wayne Collection, which highlights 2018-19 student work.
Wayne Collection was first produced in 1985 as a literary/art contest and magazine, designed to recognize student efforts in those areas. Over time, it evolved from a competition into a broader compilation of student work selected by teachers at each school.
It was converted from a tangible publication into an online publication in 2016, when Kim Copeland, WCPS director specialist, took over coordinating the project.
“The artwork and writing selections, which fill these pages, are simply amazing,” Copeland said, giving a nod to not only students from all ages and grades but to the teachers who work with them on a daily basis. She also credited Tracy Cox, the district’s print and copy shop specialist, with compiling the student work into the online gallery.
