First Prize


Ms. Erica FUKUI
Selected Title: Marvel’s The Avengers

Marc Helgesen’s Comment:
”I like the attention you are paying to the team effort and the fact they all (and we all as humans) have different strengths and skills. Maybe that is one of the most important themes from books like the Avengers.

And I am very impressed that this was written by an elementary school student. I hope you continue reading and learning English. Best wishes for great success.”

Ms. Yuko SAITO
Selected Title: Marvel’s Captain America

Marc Helgesen’s Comment:
”Good presentation style. The point about the culture gap, related to things like gesture, facial expressions and jokes, is important. I like the way she tied herself to Capt. America’s line, “I can do this all day.”
