EHS Students Selected for MCCC's Aspiration Literary/Art Competition

MercerSeveral Ewing High School students were selected as winners for Mercer County Community College's 2021 Aspiration Literary/ Art Competition. Students were encouraged to submit their work by Mrs. Megan Soltysik in their Creative Writing and English classes.

Aspirations is an annual literary/visual arts magazine published by Mercer County Community College which cultivates the talents of area high school students and allows them to share their work with the community. For over twenty-five years the college has invited local high schools to participate in a competition from which the very best in original art and writing is chosen for publication. Each spring, when Aspirations is published, the college hosts a recognition program to acknowledge the contributors and their talents.

Students may enter only three works total, some of our EHS students had all three piece selected!
