Student Recognized for Creative Writing

Out of the hundreds of submissions countywide, Babylon Memorial Grade School sixth-grader Sydney Altbacker was named a first-place winner in this year’s Suffolk Reading Council Creative Writing Contest for her prose. Sydney’s submission was a historical fiction story set during WWII.

As a first-place winner, Sydney will be honored at an awards celebration in June. At that time she will receive a free copy of the Suffolk Reading Council’s literary journal, featuring her published entry.
