John Glenn High School Students Earn Regional Scholastic Writing Awards
Awards go out each January to young writers from the area. In December students from John Glenn High School submitted their best works to Scholastic in ten different categories for writing, including the senior portfolio. Judges evaluated the work for technical skill, originality, and personal voice/vision. On January 19 John Glenn was notified that nine students received twenty awards out of 1,293 submissions in the region: five Gold Keys, which will now compete in the national contest, eight Silver Keys, and seven Honorable Mention. The students will be recognized at the Grand Wayne Center in Fort Wayne on February 12. Mikayla Jackson’s Gold Key portfolio is an enormous accomplishment, as it is one of only seven for the entire region, and if she receives a national award, she would be invited to Carnegie Hall in New York City in June. Notifications for national winners will come in March.
The team placed 1st in regionals with a total score of 29,383.3, and 2nd in the exhibition super quiz event.
