Thanks to everyone who submitted a story to the 2019 contest!

Stories were limited to 500 words in length. Each had to include three words: craven, lurid and tremulous. We received about 100 entries in the 11 to 14 age category, and close to 50 in the 15 to 18 category. 

Winners in each age category received gift cards worth $50 (first), $30 (second) and $20 (third). First place entries -- and the names of the other winning stories and writers -- were published in the Oct. 31 paper edition of the Tri-Cities. All the stories went up on the newspaper's web site, too. 

The Scary Story Contest is a partnership between Coquitlam Public Library, the Port Moody Public Library and the Tri-City News.
