Kirsten Snyder, a senior at THS, recently won a national essay writing competition. Kirsten’s interest in the competition was encouraged by Mrs. Kowalski who, when she read one of Kirstens essays thought it had a lot of potential. Ms. Kowalski convinced Kirsten to submit the essay into the National competition. Her essay was an analysis of character interaction in the book “Everything I Never Told You” by Celeste Ng. The competition began in early February and the results came out in march.

The prize for winning county competitions won kirsten $250 and also qualified her for nationals where she submitted the same essay. When the results for nationals came out in April Kirsten had also wont first. Winning nationals had a prize of $2000!

Kirsten has loved to write since she was very young and this competition gave her a chance to showcase her talent. Kirsten has also won the Rotary competition, which was a speech competition. Kirsten wrote about a big controversial topic, which won Kirsten $300. She is planning on entering the Ayn Rand competition where she will have to read either Atlas Shrugged or Anthem.
