 Two Juniors Earn the NCTE 2022 Achievement Award in Writing
Madeleine Dorman ‘23 and Katherine Zeng ‘23 have been selected for the 2022 Achievement Award in Writing by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

The NCTE Achievement Awards in Writing is a school-based writing program established in 1957 to encourage high school students to write and to recognize some of the best student writers in the nation. This award is created specifically for high school juniors and schools in all 50 states, Canada and American schools abroad are eligible to nominate students for the writing program.

This year, schools nominated 266 students. Of that number, 79 received Certificates of Superior Writing, and 187 received Certificates of Nomination. Each student submitted two pieces of writing. Two independent judges scored each submission on the expression of ideas, language use, and unique perspective and voice.

“In thinking about our nominees for the NCTE Excellence in Writing Awards, we look for students with great skill and passion for writing. Both Madeleine and Katherine fit that description perfectly,” says English teacher Arlie Parker. “They are creative young women for whom writing serves as a tool for living.”
