NFA Main Student Wins All Expense Paid Field Trip


Redwan Arosh's essay about Bear Mt State Park won him and his classmates an all expense paid field trip May 10 to the grounds to tour the zoo, enjoy a picnic and ride the carousel courtesy of Teaching the Hudson Valley and their yearly Writing About Place Essay Contest.

 

Newburgh Free Academy, Main Campus student, Redwan Arosh, grade 9 won a trip to a place in the Hudson Valley as a result of an essay he submitted for their "Writing about Place" competition, sponsored by Teaching the Hudson Valley. Three additional students, Isabella, Arton, and Chris received honorable mentions.

“Students who submitted entries to this year’s Writing about Place imagined being trees, super heroes, statues, and more. They shared personal connections to urban parks and formal gardens, mansions and mountains,” said Scott Keller, acting director of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area. “Their writing reminds us that our region is full of places that provide solace and inspiration, shaping our identities and sense of community.”

THV will share students’ poems and essays in the coming weeks on THV blog. In the meantime, we want to introduce the top-scoring authors in this school year’s Writing about Place. Their classes will receive trips to the places they wrote about.
