Freshman Uma Bhat recently was named a Runner-Up in the Fifth Annual Student Editorial Contest. Her piece is entitled “The Price of Patriarchy in India.” Beginning May 24, the New York Times will feature 10 essays each school day. The essays will be featured here: https://www.nytimes.com/spotlight/editorial-winners.  To be recognized, the editorial had to be gripping from the first paragraph to the end. The argument had to be sound, address counterarguments, and provide solid evidence. The piece also had to have voice and personality and not merely sound like a summary of the basic pros and cons of an issue.

Uma recently published a movie Review of Raazi, a story of a female spy in the disputed Kashmir region separating India and Pakistan. Next year she will be a member of the Falcon News Feed. Congratulations Uma.
