Congratulations to the following Spartans, who recently won honors in the regional Scholastic Writing Awards competition.
Three Middle School students and seven Upper School students received two Gold Key awards, seven Silver Key awards and three Honorable Mentions across a range of writing categories, including science fiction/fantasy, novel writing, poetry, short story, script writing, critical essay and personal essay/memoir.
Gold Key recipients will move on to the national competition, which will be held later this spring. National winners will be invited to attend the national Scholastic Art and Writing Awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City in June.
Please be sure to give all these talented writers a high-five when you see them on campus.
