RE students win writing awards

Four Ransom Everglades students won recognition in the 2022 La Plume Young Writers’ Contest, a competition open to students throughout Miami-Dade County. Patrick Keedy Brown ’26 earned a first place in the middle school division (entries were submitted last school year); Lucia Rose Dahn ’23 and Sophia Romanov-Imber ’24 earned second place in the high school competition; and Garrett Fox ’26 received an honorary award from the middle school division.
The competition invites students to express themselves through short stories; they are subject to rules relevant to their various grade levels. A panel of professionals from the literary, educational and art worlds evaluates all submissions.

The students’ final, edited pieces will be compiled in an e-book. Keedy Brown submitted his entry, Diary, under the direction of teacher Flavia Araripe; Dahn submitted Downpour under former RE teacher Gila Aloni; Romanov-Imber shared Anya under Corinne Rhyner; and Fox worked on What’s Happened to Our World under Shaida Whitley.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
