Congratulations to the 2016 “It’s Always Something” Teen Essay Contest winners!
The “It’s Always Something” Teen Essay Contest provides NYC high school students the opportunity to share stories about their experience with cancer. The essay simply needs to be about how cancer has touched your life – whether you have it, had it, or know someone who has. All essays are read and reviewed by a panel of judges and the top three essays will receive prizes.
Thank you to this year’s Judges:
Past judges have included: Holly Black, Becca Fitzpatrick, Gayle Forman, Adele Griffin, Lev Grossman, Jenny Han, Maureen Johnson, Marisa Marchetto, Georgia McBride, Rainbow Rowell, Margaret Stohl, Melissa Walker, Robin Wasserman, and more.
