Scholastic Writing Awards!
Hey guys. Regional (NY) winners for the Scholastic Writing Awards were just announced, and I'm amazed to be able to announce that I won three (silver/Humor, gold/personal essay, short short story). I looked back at something I won for in 10th grade, and realized that it's a piece of angsty crap, and have revised it a bit. I'm constantly revising my work, so I present to you the two gold winners. Please comment!Gettysburg EveSearching for a Song
Anyone else win?
