NJCTE Writing Contest Award Winner from PH

Under Ms. Marootian’s guidance in Honors English II, sophomore Allanah Mednard responded to the NJCTE Writing Contest Prompt below:

Write a personal essay or narrative about taking a Social Breath in 2020...

In 2020, we have heard a clarion call for social change.  Names such as George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery have become familiar to all who read or listen to the news.   Many columnists, politicians, and everyday citizens are calling for change. In a personal essay or narrative, consider the call for social change as you experience it.  Have you actively participated?   If so, how has your participation manifested itself?  If not, why have you chosen another path?  What other factors impact your thinking about being a responsible citizen and engaging in actions and activities that result in a socially and emotionally secure world?


Allanah won the ‘silver medal’ and $75.00 in prize money for her essay!
