Calhoun High School sophomore Faith Maldonado was selected as the second-place winner of the Kenneth F. Gambone Writing Contest.
Maldonado was nominated by her English teacher, Dawn Boland, to participate in the contest back in March. She submitted an entry about the theme “We are more alike than different” and was selected by the English department as one of four Calhoun representatives.
After submitting a second entry about a topic of her choice, Maldonado was selected by the Long Island Language Arts Council as the second-place winner out of all of the 10th-grade entries from Nassau and Suffolk counties.  

She has been invited by LILAC to be honored for her efforts at their spring luncheon during which she will read her submission, “Internalized Hatred and Other Handbag Accessories of a Teenage Girl.”
