Fall Writing Contest Winners Announced

Congratulations to the winners of the fall Hebron Writing Contest: Jenni Flynn '25, Aaron Han '23, and Marlene Luedeke '22!

For this writing contest, students were asked to reflect on a time in their life when they experienced injustice, used their voice to fight against injustice, or perhaps even contributed to someone else’s experience of injustice. 

A winning essay was chosen for the middle school (grades 6th-8th), 9th-10th graders, and 11th-PG students. Winning essays are displayed in the English hallway on the second floor of the School Building and are featured in The Hebron Review, our student-produced magazine, and blog. As a prize, each winner receives a $15.00 gift certificate to the Student Union.

More about the Hebron Writing Contest

The Hebron Writing Contest was started by members of the English department to help generate, promote, and recognize the incredible student voices in our community.  Contests are usually organized around a particular theme, but students are encouraged to take the prompt in a great variety of directions; in fact, winning essays are usually ones that push the boundaries and respond to the prompt in a creative and original way.
