Freshman Carolyn Hohl won a Silver Key for her poem, “Stairway.” Carolyn is a member of Outspoken who read this poem at the group’s most recent showcase at Masters. She also won an Honorable Mention in the flash fiction category for “Behind the Mask,” and an Honorable Mention for her short story, “The Ocean is Always Moving.”
Junior David Oks received a Gold Key in the flash fiction category for “Rudford’s,” and a Silver Key for his poem, “Song of Myself.”
A panel of professional novelists, editors, teachers, poets, librarians, journalists, and other literary professionals selected the winning works from the 2,009 submissions this year. Gold Keys were awarded to the most accomplished pieces, Silver Keys were given for distinguished works and Honorable Mentions recognized promising works. Gold Keys are automatically forwarded for consideration at the national level of the Scholastic Writing Awards.
To recognize their outstanding work, the Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention recipients are invited, along with their guests, teachers and the jurors, to the 2018 awards ceremony at Manhattanville College on Sunday, March 4.
