Albany High juniors earn playwriting kudos

ALBANY, N.Y. (March 7, 2017) -- Two Albany High School juniors have received regional awards for scripts they wrote from the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers.

 

Emma Colton-Heins and Cliodhna Thayer each wrote a dramatic script that earned a Gold Key award. Both their scripts have been submitted for national review; national medalists will be announced on March 14.

 

Colton-Heins’ script is called “An Open Book.” Thayer’s script is called “A Royally Grim Mistake.”

 

Both young women were students in Ward Dales’ playwriting class.

 

The Alliance for Young Artists and Writers is a national organization that identifies students with exceptional artistic and literary talent through its scholastic art and writing awards.

 

Colton-Heins and Thayer’s scripts were among more than 330,000 art and literary projects from across the country submitted for review in 2017.

 

Congratulations to both of them!
