Seattle Central students take top spots in annual literary contest

In this year’s League for Innovation Literary Contest, five Seattle Central students earned recognition:

  • Whitney Tuxbury, first-place, Essay
  • William Abbot, first-place, One-Act Play
  • Erin Armbruster, honorable mention, Fiction
  • Daisy Sullivan, honorable mention, Poetry
  • Kao Zong Her, honorable mention, Poetry

The annual competition — sponsored by the League for Innovation, a nonprofit dedicated to catalyzing the community college movement — has been held since 1999 and challenges students from community colleges across the nation to submit their best writing. The Seattle Colleges chapter of the League for Innovation will submit both Whitney’s essay, “Apple Halves,” and William’s play, “What’s it gonna be, Gabriel?” to the national competition hosted by the College District in Dallas. Winners from the Seattle Colleges District will receive a cash award and a plaque at a recognition ceremony in early June. Winners at the national level will receive an additional cash prize.
