Every year The Press puts together its Halloween contest for South Jersey kids to flex their creative sides and finish our story.

This year you guys did not disappoint, as about 900 students submitted their own versions of stories. The contest was open to grades kindergarten to high school but no kindergarten or first grade students submitted content.

Still, we had children from all over our coverage area share their thoughts on our two stories — “When Your Mom Falls in Love with Dracula” and “Mystery and Fright on Halloween Night” — and students let their imaginations run wild. One eighth grader envisioned her mother being bit by Dracula and levitating off the floor. Another fifth grader depicted a spider the size of a fist crawl onto his uncle’s neck.
