Several ACHS students submitted entries to the Voice of Kansas.
"Voices of Kansas, digitally published by the Kansas Association of Teachers of English, welcomes manuscripts and artwork in the categories of Perspectives & Literary Criticism, Artistic Expression, Poetry, and Creative Fiction & Non-Fiction from educators, student teachers, and students in grades 3-6 & 7-12. Our mission is for this journal to be a place for young writers to have a voice through both written and visual expression. Editor's choice entries will be featured with lesson plans aligned to Common Core Standards for use by English Language Arts teachers in the state of Kansas."
The students chosen for publication include:
