Congratulations to our Middle School Students and their Language Arts Teacher, Geetha Holdsworth!
Each year, the Santa Fe New Mexican Newspaper sponsors a holiday writing contest. In 2010 there were 423 entries this year from all over New Mexico and our students won 8 of the 18 prizes for which students were eligible! This is the third year in a row that our students have won several awards in this competition! For the past three years, our school has held the record for the most awards won by any one school. The judges choose the winning pieces without knowing which school each writer attends.
- Mima Obo- First Place Teen Stories
- Lucas Weiss- Third Place Teen Stories
- Zascha Fox- Second Place Children Stories
- Brenna O'Brien- First Place Teen Essays
- Jose Byrne- Second Place Teen Essays
- Arryel Griego- Andraud- Third Place Teen Essays
- Alicia Sandoval- Second Place Children Essays
- James Fulreader- Second Place Children's Poetry
(You had to be 13 or older to qualify for the teen writing category, which means that our teens were competing against high school students!)
We also plan to hang the winning stories in the Middle Earth Lobby after break.
Congratulations to all of our wonderful writers!
