Carlisle students win writing awards
Sixteen Carlisle School eighth graders have won Scholastic Writing Gold Keys in the annual art and writing competition sponsored by the Boston Globe. English teacher Marcella Pixley announced the results at the April 16 Carlisle School Committee meeting where the students received a round of applause and certificates.
Two of the students, Caroline Guild and Alison Richard, read their writing to the committee. They both received National Awards, Guild a gold medal and Richard a silver medal. According to the web site of the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers (www.artandwriting.org), there were 35 students in Massachusetts who received national-level recognition for placing in the top 1% of all participants. Both students are invited to a ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York. ∆
