Superior Writers at Syosset HS

Syosset High School juniors Rachel Lo and Rikki Weiss are winners of the 2016 National Council of Teachers of English Achievement Awards in Writing.  Rachel and Rikki were recognized for “superior writing” based on their themed writing samples that explored the conflict between nurturing passions and meeting obligations.

The NCTE competition was established in 1957 to encourage high school students in their writing and to publicly recognize some of the best student writers in the nation. All entries were evaluated by national judges on content, purpose, audience, tone, word choice, organization, development and style.
