Bragle picked three essays that her fifth grade students had produced and submitted them to the essay contest.
She said Maura's selection as one of the finalists was "very exciting."
According to Maura, it took her about 45 minutes to compose her winning essay.
"It just inspired me because I was thinking and she's playing music " that always helps me get a good writing thing going," said Maura. "I started thinking of this world that only has music in it, and it's always happy and it doesn't matter what you do " nothing is bad or good."
In Maura's essay, she brings to life a world filled with castles, dragons and magic.
"You have to believe that it is alive and comes to life. That's my magic world. I wonder what yours is," wrote Maura.
Maura said writing is a big part of her life.
"Maybe I'll write about cats or something and then the next day I'll write about two friends that play together every day and then there's a problem," said Maura.
