McDonogh Students Win Book Publishing Contest

Over the course of the 2020-21 School Year, students from across nearly 300 schools around the world were given the opportunity to submit manuscripts and illustrations of original bilingual children’s books, either in Spanish and English or French and English.

Taylor Moorehead '22, Ryan Bolduc '22, and Callum Bullers '26 and their book Pierre’s Adventure Around the Francophone World were selected from roughly 100 submissions, and the students have begun the process of working with the publisher, Creo En Ti Media, to prepare their manuscripts for publication, a process that will continue through the next school year.

The published works will be shared with communities across the U.S. and abroad, including with partner organizations in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The books will be available for purchase at all major online booksellers like and Barnes and Noble, and students retain the copyright and earn royalties off of the sales of their books. We are delighted to congratulate these students and are looking forward to sharing their work within our school community and with our partners near and far.

The program was organized by the Global Education Benchmark Group (GEBG), a non-profit association of schools with global education programs, in partnership with Creo En Ti Media.
