Chronicle seniors win Ryan White award

By Judd Liebman

Lauren Seo ’10 and Jamie Kim ’10 won Honorable Mention in the Ryan White Awards for their story titled “Pressed for Time,” in the November 2008 Chronicle.

The award is dedicated to White, a hemophiliac teenager who contracted AIDS from a blood transfusion and died in 1990. It gives cash prizes to students writing for their school newspaper who demonstrate an excellence in medical writing.

The $50 award will be presented Nov. 15 in Washington, D.C. at the National Scholastic Press Association convention.

The piece written about students who are entitled to extra time to finish a test or quiz, appeared in the November 2008 issue in the Features section of The Chronicle.
