The Literacy Council has announced that it will celebrate the Bell Hooks Writing Contest winners on Sunday. The contest, open to local high school students, required them to submit an original essay on social justice.

After careful consideration, the Council received numerous entries and selected the winners who demonstrated outstanding writing skills and a deep understanding of the importance of social justice in our society. The winners will be recognized at a ceremony on Sunday, where they will receive their awards and have the opportunity to read their winning essays.

Bell Hooks, a renowned author, and social activist, strongly advocates education and literacy. The Council chose to name the contest after her in honor of her contributions to the field of education and her commitment to social justice.

The Literacy Council hopes this contest will inspire more young people to develop their writing skills and engage in discussions about social justice. They believe that encouraging young people to explore these issues through writing can help create a more just and equitable society for all.
