Award in Excellence in Literature Winner

Congratulations to junior Brian Bontempo for winning an Award of Excellence in Literature. Bontempo has been writing short stories and poems since the third grade. He pulled his idea from a poem that he wrote a year earlier about how snowflakes relate to human’s uniqueness and powerlessness.
The poem was a unique twist on the contest’s theme “Together We Can.”
Congratulations also to freshman
Emily Birnbaum for receiving honorable mention in Literature. She has been writing since she was 8 and has entered the contest every year since the sixth grade to sharpen
and strengthen her skills.
