Cara Lotter and Anouk Ritivoi Received National Recognition From the Promising Young Writers Program

Congratulations to Cara Lotter and Anouk Ritivoi for receiving Certificates of Recognition for the Promising Young Writers Program from the National Council of Teachers of English!

According to NCTE, 90 eighth grade students from across the country were nominated this year. Of those, just 56 students received Certificates of Recognition. 

To participate in this program, students were nominated by their English and literature teachers. Then, they submitted a piece of writing in response to the prompt provided by NCTE. After being selected to represent JMS as finalists, the students revised their writing samples and also revised and submitted an additional piece of their best writing in a different genre. The two writing samples were evaluated by national judges on content, purpose, tone, word choice, organization, development, and style.

Congratulations, Cara and Anouk!
