Teen Author Wins Gold, Silver Awards In Writing Competition
Sunnyside resident Carly Sorenson is the winner of two awards in the 2012 National Scholastic Art & Writing Contest. The eighthgrader who attends the School of the Future in Manhattan won the gold medal for VBoulevard, a short story about a girl who gets bullied. She also earned a silver medal for another narrative, Hurricane Flood, which tells the story of a girl who gracefully deals with inclement weather and her parents’ dysfunctional marriage. Sorenson, who will attend Millennium H.S. in Manhattan next year, says her next piece will probably be a comedy. Sorenson is seen here after the awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall last Friday. The National Scholastic Art & Writing Contest began in 1923. Past winners include Robert Redford, Andy Warhol, Truman Capote and Sylvia Plath.
