Students Recognized for Excellence in Writing

Congratulations to Carey students Kya Schafer and Chase Bennion, who were recognized for excellence in writing through the Idaho Scholastic Writing Awards. Kya Schafer won an Honorable Mention for her short fantasy story, "Redsnow." Chase Bennion won the Gold Key Award for his short fantasy story, "The Wolf's Eyes of War." His piece has been automatically submitted to the national Scholastic Writing Awards.

Both students will be honored in a ceremony at Boise State University on March 19. English teacher Lindee Williams wrote, "Both students took the initiative to come in after school to work on their pieces and spend time working independently editing and perfecting their writing. Their hard work paid off!"
