Cady M. Wins National Silver Medal
Every year, Junior High students participate in the Scholastic Art & Writing Competition. This is a national competition, previously won by luminaries such as Andy Warhol and Ernest Hemingway. Students submit novels, short stories, poems, and non-fiction essays. Cady M., an 8th grade student at Milwaukee Montessori School, entered a portion of her novel, The Raid on England. Not only did Cady win a Gold Key in the state competition, she went on to win a Silver Medal nationally. Her work is one of only thirty pieces to be honored in the entire nation, and she is one of only two 8th graders in the country to receive this distinction. Congratulations to Cady M. on this remarkable accomplishment!
