Westlake student's story published in national magazine

Neige DeAngelis

Neige DeAngelis, a Dover Intermediate School fifth-grade student, won a national story contest by Cricket magazine for her story about a temperamental, fire-breathing dragon named Mr. Feugo.

Neige’s story, “350 Words or Else!” chronicles the scene of Mr. Feugo, editor of “Dragonfly” magazine, being upset when readers sent in 10-page stories for publication. Neige’s story was published in the October 2014 issue of Cricket magazine.

Fifth-grade teacher Donna Dieterich encourages her students to spread their creative efforts. Neige’s story was chosen from the May/June 2014 story contest, earning a second prize for ages 10 and under. Cricket magazine publishes fiction and classic literature, as well as nonfiction stories on culture, history, science and the arts, for children ages 9 to 14.
