Congratulations to Chloe Allen, who has been selected by the National Council of Teachers of English as a winner in the 2012 NCTE Achievement Awards in Writing!
The NCTE Achievement Awards in Writing program was established in 1957 to encourage high school students in their writing and to recognize publicly some of the best writers in the nation.
Student writing is judged based on content, purpose, audience, tone, word choice, organization, development, and style. Judges also look for effective and imaginative use of language to inform and move an audience.
Winning students and their schools receive certificates recognizing their accomplishment and the names of the students and their schools are posted on the NCTE website.
