An excerpt of Danielle’s poem, “Total Darkness.”

Recently, freshman Danielle Gruber’s was selected as a Gold Key winner by the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards in her region for her poem submission,  “Total Darkness.” The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is a non profit organization that acknowledges writers and artists and their talent and ingenuity. This year there were more than 346,000 submissions and Danielle’s work was selected by a panel of judges and professionals. Currently, she has won a Gold Key level award, which will allow her work to advance to national judging. She’ll then be considered for and nominated for National Medals, which will be announced on March 13th, 2018.

We at Village are very proud of her and wish her the best of luck as the next round of judging commences!
