Mamaroneck's Sara Rukeyser Wins National Writing Contest

MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Mamaroneck High School's Sara Rukeyser was one of four students named winners in the Rochester Institute of Technology's SpiRIT Writing Contest for deaf or hard-of-hearing high school students.

Dozens of entries, which included a short writing sample and an essay or report, were received from across the country. The winners had the option of a $500 prize or a scholarship and travel expenses to RIT's Explore Your Future career exploration camp on the Rochester, N.Y. campus. The camp is a six-day summer program that offers deaf and hard-of-hearing students opportunities to sample different careers and college life.

Rukeyser, who is entering the 11th grade at Mamaroneck High School, wrote about psychiatrist Robert Coles' study of the moral, political and spiritual aspects of children's minds.

The contest was sponsored by the National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
