LHS Senior Wins National Scholastic Art & Writing Award
Friday, June 9, 2017 -
Liverpool High School senior Natalie Morse has been named a national medalist as part of the 2017 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
Morse’s humor piece entitled “Parents Guide: Burn the Baby Books,” received a Gold Medal during an awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall. The piece mocked the relationship between teens and parents.
More than 2,500 students from across the country were honored on June 8, and past award recipients include Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Sylvia Plath, Ken Burns, Stephen King, Lena Dunham, Richard Linklater, and Zac Posen.
Morse wrote her humor piece as a student taking Writing Workshop 3 with LHS English teacher Kelly Frantz. She received a gold key at the regional level, which qualified her for the national competition.
Morse plans to attend Onondaga Community College in the fall and will study psychology.
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a non-profit organization whose mission is to recognize students with exceptional artistic and literary talent.
