Stockholm resident Abigail Lupi, an eighth-grader at Montclair Kimberley Academy, has earned national recognition for her writing skills as the recipient of a prestigious National Silver Medal in the 2014 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

More than 255,000 works of art and writing were submitted and only the top 1 percent was recognized at the national level by panels of creative professionals. Lupi's entry was in the Poetry category, and she wrote about the exclusion and bullying of a friend.

Lupi, who has previously received an honorable mention for poetry at the regional level, will receive her award at the National Ceremony, an event that will be webcast live from Carnegie Hall on June 6 at 6 p.m.
