Congratulations to our Promising Young Writers by the NCTE

The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) is the nation’s most comprehensive literacy organization. The Promising Young Writers Program represents NCTE’s commitment to early and continuing work in the development of writing. The school-based writing program was established in 1985 to stimulate and recognize writing talents and to emphasize the importance of writing skills among eighth-grade students.
This year, schools across the United States nominated 116 students. Of that number, 66 received the highest award, Certificates of Recognition, and 50 received Certificates of Participation. Three 8th grade students at North Middle School have been recognized as 2022 Promising Young Writers by the NCTE. Sophia Li and Leah Mourtil both received prestigious Certificates of Recognition, while Talya Bagim received a Certificate of Participation. Congratulations to these promising young writers!
