Four North Seattle Community College Students Win Literary Contest

Each year, the League for Innovation holds a national literary contest for community college students. The first round takes place at the district level and first place winners go on to compete against students across the country in four categories – one-act play, poetry, personal essay and short story. Four NSCC students have been named winners of the district level contest in Seattle.

NSCC student Victoria Brooks won first place for her one-act play, “? Violation or: Nietsche goes to traffic court.” In the personal essay category, NSCC student Lindsey Walker won first place for her entry, “Chaos Theory,” while honorable mentions were awarded to NSCC students Zoe Swanson, for “What’s My Age Again?” and Jessica Dunn for “Then I Met Wonder Woman.”
 
All winners will be formally celebrated at a District awards ceremony – an annual and much-anticipated event that precedes June's Board of Trustees meeting. As first-place winners, Victoria Brooks and Zoe Swanson will advance to the League of Innovation’s national competition.
 
Winners of the national contest will be announced on June 10. All winning entries will be published in a League for Innovation student literary publication. The League is the only major international organization specifically committed to improving community colleges through innovation, experimentation, and institutional transformation.
