Lexi Gustafson was excited to learn that her story, “The Theft,” was selected as the youth winner for the Lake Geneva Regional News and Kenosha News “You Finish the Story” contest.
The 12-year-old is a seventh-grader at the Lake Geneva Middle School.
Although her favorite subject is math, she enjoys writing creative stories because “they are fun, and you can come up with your own ideas.”
Gustafson, of Lake Como, is also looking forward to seeing her story published in both the Lake Geneva Regional News and the Kenosha News.
“I think it is really cool,” Gustafson said. “My parents are really excited, too.”
