Max­i­m­il­ian writes his way to suc­cess

The Wokingham Paper - - EDUCATION -

AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD has been named as a fi­nal­ist in a young jour­nal­ist con­test.

Max­i­m­il­ian Ka­lyuzh­nov, who at­tends St Joseph’s Col­lege, is one of 12 who could win the STABILO Young Jour­nal­ist of the Year con­test. His en­try was about his un­likely but in­spir­ing friend­ship with Rudy, the 104-year-old ex-pro­fes­sor.

Max­i­m­il­ian’s en­try was cho­sen from hun­dreds of en­tries; the over­all win­ner will be an an­nounced next month.

The bud­ding young jour­nal­ist said: “When I re­ceived the let­ter from STABILO, I was hum­bled and over­whelmed with joy, I couldn’t be­lieve it. It is both an hon­our and a bless­ing be­ing se­lected as a fi­nal­ist and I am for­ever grate­ful to STABILO and First News for cre­at­ing this writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion.”
