DASH writers impress in the Scholastic Writing Awards

Not only are DASH students great artists, their many gifts extend across a broad range of talents – music, athletics, leadership, and yes, superb writing. As is the case every year, our DASH writers submitted a sterling portfolio of written works. Junior student, James Balo received a Silver Key and the notable American Voices nomination which advances his work to national competition. Sophomore students Micah Bast (Red Ribbon), Alana Martinez (White Ribbon), Alexandra Delgado (Red Ribbon), and Sam Yaziji (Silver Key) were all honored, while Freshman student Yasmin Waheed received two Silver Keys and one Honorable Mention.
