CONTEST Announcing the winners of our Student Fiction Contest G HARLO1TESV1LLE, Va., high school senior Stephanie Taylor is the grand prize winner in USA WEEKEND'S third annual Student Fiction Contest. Taylor receives a $2,000 scholarship for her winning short story, "Sugar Days," about two young teens and the issue of weight — both physical weight and the weight of guilt. It will appear in a July issue of the magazine, capping off our 1997 Summer Fiction Series, featuring original works by best-selling authors like Jonathan Kellerman and Edna Buchanan. Taylor, who reads USA WEEKEND in The Charlottemille Daily Progress, attends St. Anne's-Belfield School and plans to enter the University of Virginia this fall. Her story was selected from among 4,856 submitted by ninth- through 12-graders from across the nation. Final judging was done by Executive Editor Amy Eisman and noted author and poet Ana Castillo, a contributor to the magazine's 1996 Summer Fiction Series. Students drew on both personal experiences and pure fantasy to create an exciting array of stories: In one, a young woman changes her stories as Charlottesville, Va., high school senior Stephanie Taylor, who won the grand prize, says "I absorb everything around me" for inspiration. ; Students!

As for "Sugar Days,' Taylor says she began "with the basic image of two middle-school-aged friends, one with an eating disorder. From there I let the characters write the story out themselves. Castillo was impressed with the point of view Taylor chose.
