Two Emerson Waldorf School students were honored by their school for excellence in prose and poetry.
Emily Jolly, a sophomore at the Chapel Hill school, won the Lydia Maria Child Short Story Prize with her entry, “The Witches of Endon.” Freshman Eva Lie-Nielsen won the Emerson Poetry Prize with her poem, “To Fall In Love.”
The contests were judged by local authors Michael Chitwood, Anna Jean Mayhew and Lynn York.
The contests were open to students in sixth through 12th grade. Finalists were Mariah Dahill-Moore, Emma Hulbert, Forrest Jackson and Aaron Lindeke-Myers.
