Writers Winning Awards

Earlier this year, at the encouragement of their teachers, a group of St. Albans student writers submitted their works to a wide array of local and national competitions. Today, they are being recognized.

From the national Scholastic Arts and Writing competition, to DC’s own Parkmont Poetry Festival, four talented St. Albans writers have had their works recognized and awarded.

Please join us in celebrating their efforts!

DJ Heiber ’25 has won third place for his poem “They Stood, They Stand,” for the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site Annual Student Poetry Contest.

Teddy Lee ’25 and Henry Terrell ’24 both entered and won awards for the Scholastic Arts and Writing competition. Lee’s works “Jacket,” “The Arches at Colesville and 2nd,” and “A Fiery Kick” were awarded Silver Key awards, and his piece “Bike Shop” received an Honorable Mention, in the Personal Essay & Memoir category. Terrell was recognized with an honorable mention in Journalism for his article “A Fleeting Culture: The Loss of Maritime Island Communities on the Chesapeake Bay.”

Tommy Pryor ’24 has earned semi-finalist recognition for his poem “The Wanderer” in the Parkmont Poetry Festival. His work was one of more than 300 submitted to the competition — and he advances to consideration for one of only 20 finalist spots.

Congratulations to all who submitted their work for consideration.
