ROSEMOUNT, Minn. -- Eagan High School junior Madeline Matsoff was selected to receive a Certificate for Superior Writing in the 2017 National Achievement Awards in Writing sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Of the 517 juniors nationwide who were nominated for the award by their schools' English teachers, 106 received Certificates of Superior Writing. Matsoff was one of only three Minnesota students to earn the recognition this year.

Recipients are selected based on writing samples they produced during their junior year. Each nominee submitted two samples of writing, one they consider their best writing and one based on a theme chosen by the awards committee. This year's theme was based on the quote, "With great power comes great responsibility." Writing samples were judged by a panel of national judges based on content, purpose, audience, tone, word choice, organization, development and style.

The National Achievement Awards in Writing was established in 1957 to encourage high school students in their writing and to publicly recognize some of the best student writers in the nation. NCTE submits the names of award recipients to colleges and universities, and students receive a certificate and cards highlighting their achievement to attach to their college application forms.
