Students recognized for writing

Westborough – The GFWC Westborough Woman's Club has announced two local student winners in the state writing contests. The GFWC of Massachusetts sponsors a short story and poetry contest yearly for grades kindergarten to 12.

Arpita Joyce, grade 7, won first place in grades 7 to 9 for her poem “Ancient River.” Her entry was submitted to the national contest sponsored by the GFWC International.

Joshua Chen, grade 7, won second place for his short story “Lost Ghost.” Both students attend Sarah Gibbons Middle School in Westborough. The students and parents attended a state program where all short story, poetry, art and photography winners were recognized.

For the past several years Westborough students have been recognized for their writing and art work at the state level. Each year teachers are informed of the contest qualifications and to inform the students. Many submit work completed in school, while others do work on their own. Each year, the first place winner in each grade category for the short story and poetry is then submitted to the national contest.
