Student Wins National High School Writing Contest

Narrative magazine announced Sarah Lao '21 is the winner of the publication's sixth annual "Tell Me a Story" High School Contest.

Her poem "Triptych" won first place in a competition that received submissions from high school students in 39 states and 19 countries.

According to the magazine, "the subjects of the winning poems centered on varying notions of escape: the daily tensions and unspoken longings of a daughter and mother trapped inside during the pandemic; the beauty of boredom as provocation and inspiration—as freedom from the daily distractions of social media; the fear and deep grief of this year of COVID-19 and the marshaling of hope as escape."
