SEBASTIAN – The Sebastian River High School English Facility selected three seniors who have demonstrated excellence in writing in their high school courses.

The Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation (LRJF) has given a $300 writing prize to local high schools for the past several years. The foundation lets the school decide how to apply the award money to celebrate outstanding writing, which is part of the LRJF mission to encourage young writers.

The Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation preserves the historic home of the poet and provides a gathering place for writers by offering writers workshops, courses for both adults and children and community-wide events such as an annual Poetry BBQ and monthly “Celebrate a Local Author.”

Congratulations to students Ruth Philippe, James LaBranche and Lucille Stull who each have been awarded $100 on behalf of the Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation.
