’Cats place in every writing contest category

The annual Brevard Council Teachers of English writing contest results have been announced, and West Shore placed winners in every category and grade. First-place winners included sophomore Tatiana Martin for her memoir titled “When Life Gives you Lemons,” sophomore Bridget Lee for her non-fiction pieced titled “Roger: A Multifaceted Character,” freshman Molly Minta for her Sci-Fi/Fantasy entry “Running,” and eighth-grader Micah H. for her poem titled “Nothing.”

“Winning the contest was a huge surprise and a honor, to know my writing was that great,” Martin said.

Tenth-grade English teacher Jeanie Griffin  said she was happy for the winners from her classes,  and surely it didn’t hurt that all the winning students had been rewarded a extra credit in their English classes.

Third-place finishers included senior Lesley Wright for her nonfiction essay titled “Hollywood’s Walk of Shame” and junior Sara-Renee Weatherby for her drama/novel piece titled “At the End of the Year.”
