Fear not, Mr. Scrooge: If you hadn't yet changed your ways and somehow missed the Christmas Eve radio broadcast of the winning entries by CMSD students in this year's Great Lakes Theater Christmas Carol Writing Contest, there is still time for your reclamation.
Because while you were off with the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, mankind invented the Internet and your tale -- as told by bright and talented Cleveland students -- is archived online at WCPN
. Or you can listen right here.
In one version, Tiny Tim goes missing and Scrooge ends up jetting around the world to find him. In another, the story is told from the ghosts' point of view.

McKenna Jablonske, Cassandra Naider & Emily Pikturna, Newton D. Baker School of Arts seventh-graders
