Three high school students have been chosen as the winners of the Maine Community College System’s A Journey Into Writing contest and named 2013 Governor’s Young Writers of the Year. They are: Emily Evans of Searsport and Arianna Tang of Frankfort, both juniors at Searsport District High School, and Fadumo Musse, a junior at Lewiston High School. A Journey Into Writing is open to all high school juniors and home-schooled students of the same age.
The three students were each presented with an award and a $2,500 check by First Lady Ann LePage in a ceremony at the Blaine House today. MCCS President John Fitzsimmons joined her in presenting the awards.
