Lily Levin ('19) is the winner of the Dave Patton Award for the Best Story by a Varsity Athlete in the 2017 Raleigh Fine Arts Society Literary Contest. This is one of the society's top three awards and carries with it a cash prize for the student plus $100 for Cary Academy.
Raleigh Fine Arts received almost 600 submissions from students who attend 23 different public and private schools throughout Wake County, and 450 of these stories were approved by teachers and scored by judges. Nineteen were selected as winners.
The winning students, along with their parents and teachers, will be honored at the Literary Contest Awards Ceremony on April 18 at the North Carolina Museum of History in downtown Raleigh.
