St. Stephen of Hungary School 8th Grade students Emily Carbone and Olivia Ganly were successfully chosen from hundreds of applicants to present their essays at the 2020 Writopia Youth Essay Conference: A Celebration of Ideas Across Disciplines.
At this conference, the next generation of thinkers, writers, and leaders share the ideas and research that they are most passionate about with a panel of their peers and the community at large. The panels form organically from a pool of critical essays we receive from writers ages 12-18, which highlight the concerns and commentary of the next generation.
Writopia Lab fosters joy, literacy, and critical thinking in children and teens from all backgrounds through creative writing.
Congratulations to Emily and Olivia!
