The Schuster Writing Competition Winners Announced
The Schuster Prize writing contest is inspiring young writers at La Follette High School.
The contest began in 2017 through funding from local author and LHS alumnus David Benjamin, whose sister Peg and friend Bob Schuster both died in 2016. Peg left behind some money to fund some sort of project, and Schuster’s wife offered an annual contribution as well once Benjamin had the idea for the contest. Both of them were also LHS graduates, and Schuster had launched an unofficial literary magazine at LHS in 1964.
The winners were announced this year via video. Congratulations to these wonderful young writers!
