Carrie Kubicki was selected as a finalist in the 2015 Stop the Hate®: Youth Speak Out essay contest.
Carrie’s essay was selected from nearly 3,000 submitted 6-12th graders across a seven-county region. Each essay was independently and anonymously read and scored by three readers and a panel of community judges.
The top 10 finalists had the opportunity to read their essays in front of a panel of judges, their peers, their families and members of the media at a special Awards Ceremony that was held at the Cleveland Museum of Art on April 30th.
On May 6th, Carrie had the opportunity to participate in a radio interview regarding her essay. The interview, from WCPN/WCLV, can be heard here.
