There were 624 letters written by New Hampshire students entered in the 2011 Letters About Literature competition. All of these have now gone through 2 levels of judging at the national LAL office and the best of these letters -- the ones where a student clearly expressed a connection to a work of literature -- are on their way to the Center for the Book at the New Hampshire State Library. The New Hampshire semi-finalist letters will come from this group of 115 letters that have advanced to level 3 judging. The semi-finalist letters will then be read and discussed by New Hampshire judges--including writers, teachers, poets, and librarians-- and winners will be selected at each competition level.
