Mariemont high school student to participate in National Writing Contest | People
MARIEMONT, OH (FOX19) - Mariemont High School junior and Williams Meadow resident Holly Huber was nominated by the Mariemont High School English Department to represent the district in the National Council of Teachers of English Achievement Awards in Writing.
Each high school selects its own nominee, agreed upon by the entire English department. Achievement Awards in Writing is a school-based writing program established in 1957 to encourage high school students in their writing and to recognize publicly some of the best student writers in the nation.
“The nomination itself is an honor, and I’m excited to write these essays,” said Holly. “It was nice of the department to consider and choose me, and I will definitely ask for a lot of feedback on my submissions in order to present the best examples of my writing creativity and range.”
The students must submit two writing samples - one sample that the student considers his or her best work and another sample that follows a theme. The 2013 theme is “Personal Mount Rushmore.” The National Council of Teachers of English will announce results and recognize students who are cited as excellent writers in May.
Holly is looking forward to college, but for now she enjoys participating in Key Club, Latin Club, Leadership Council and the school musical this spring.
