     Style Section  Getting it down on paper may be the hardest part. Use writing tips from real-life journalists to improve your news stories and develop your own writing style. Learn to use a journal to capture story ideas and improve your writing ability.

     Classroom Challenge  Check this out when you are in the mood for fun and a little competition. See how you stack up against other classes around the state in monthly writing, reading, and researching contests.
