Scholastic Action Magazine has named this year's True Teen Story national writing contest winner as Betiana Mujica of Merrick Avenue Middle School.

“We loved Betiana’s vulnerability, as well as the touching and relatable way she described the feeling of being caught between two cultures,” wrote the editors on the Scholastic website.

Mujica was selected from all other student entries in grades 6-12 around the country to earn top honors in the contest. She is currently in talks with Scholastic Magazine's editors and will be published in the magazine next school year.
