A Northside 7th Grader, Petra, was named Honorable Mention Winner in the Prose category for the Brooklyn Public Library's 2021 Teen Writing Contest & Ned Vizzini Teen Writing Prize. Way to go Petra! We are all so proud of you!
Petra's entry was evaluated by a panel of librarians on the following criteria: creativity, voice, imagery, themes, format, and mechanics. They received close to 500 submissions and Petra's writing was judged to be impressive.
Maybe It’s Me will be included in the Library's 2021 Teen Writing Journal.
