    Rebecca was one of 15 teenagers in the world to receive the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2014, from the world’s largest poetry competition. According to the Poetry Society, for this London-based young poets’ competition, a record breaking 13,630 poems were sent in by 7,603 young poets from 78 countries. Among this year’s winners (the 15 top winners and 85 commended poets) are young poets from France, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Canada and the USA, many of whom traveled to London for the October 2 ceremony at the Royal Festival Hall. The competition is open to all young poets aged 11-17 writing in English.

    Rebecca received book prizes and becomes a Youth Member of the Poetry Society.

    Here is her award winning entry, which will be published in a winners anthology spring 2015:

    About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2015 competition by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). Canterbury finalists in the competition will be announced at a later date.

    ''The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," commented a spokesperson for NMSC. ''These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success."
