Two poems by 10th grade PYC student Amani Wilson received Honorable Mention in the 2019 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, Minnesota Region. Over 340,000 pieces of writing and works of art were submitted this year, and this was Amani’s first year as a contestant.
PYC’s intern from the U of M, Lydia Hollan, helped Amani choose among her poems and enter them for consideration. The poem is one of the six she entered. (We don’t know yet which two poems were chosen as winners.) This is a wonderful achievement. Congratulations, Amani!Share
