John Witherspoon Middle School student wins writing award

Angelina Chen

Angelina Chen, a seventh grader at John Witherspoon Middle School, is the recipient of a writing award from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards program.

Chen was honored with a gold key award for flash fiction  for her story “Minimum Wage.” Flash fiction is fiction that is extremely brief, typically only a few hundred words or fewer.

Her submission began as an assignment in English teacher Keith McEvoy’s class. She told the story of a teenage girl working at an ice cream shop. Her story was judged on its originality, the technical skill demonstrated in the writing, and the emergence of a personal vision or voice.

The story has been posted on the Princeton Public Schools website.
