Your Story Dies With You

Your Story Dies With You. It's rather self-explanitory, but anyway, the idea is that every person on this earth (that's right, every last one of us) has a story to tell, and it should be told before it's too late. For thousands of years, storytelling has been a central part of how humans have communicated--stories have been passed down through generations, sharing knowledge, family history, and the odd tale with a moral that was forgotten years ago. Everyone has a story to tell, and you should tell it, now while you have the chance, because your story dies with you.

American Voices Medal

Today the winners in the national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards were announced (The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is said to be the highest honor for teens with exceptional artistic and literary talent)! According to their Facebook page, the total number of submissions for the 2013 awards (nationwide) was 230,000 entries. Of those 230,000 entries, only 1,900 received a national awards. I am proud to say that I was one of them!
I was honored with the "American Voices Medal," which designates my short story, "The Parishioner and the Pastor," as the best in all the writing entries for my region, which consists of 52 counties. And if the list is correct, only 34 "American Voices Medals" were awarded this year.
My region received only 47 national awards--and my "American Voices" is the highest award in the writing category! This is an incredible honor, and I am so excited to have been awarded this medal!
