SOUTHERN PINES — Rising O’Neal seventh grade student, Bray Woodard, attended the awards and book signing ceremony for the Grannie Annie Writing Contest on June 1 in St. Louis, Mo. Her story is published in volume 9 of The Grannie Annie book, which is a collection of stories about family histories.

The Grannie Annie received 449 stories this year, more than ever before. Students in grades 4 through 8 and homeschooled and international students age 9 through 14 are invited to interview family members of an older generation and write about something they learned from their family’s history from before their birth.

Bray’s submission is a rather humorous story titled “A Geyser for Mother” describing her father’s experiment of sticking a leaf blower into the home’s sewage vent pipe. For information about Grannie Annie or to read Bray’s published story, go to www.thegrannieannie.org.
