A one-act play co-written by three Coxsackie-Athens High School students was recently selected as the first-prize winner in the annual Student Playwriting Contest sponsored by the Columbia County Council on the Arts (CCCA). The play titled "Poor Zachary" -- written last year by current C-A seniors Meghan Marafioti, Gabriella Peters and Julia Reeves -- was one of several performed as staged readings on Sunday, October 19th during the CCCA-sponsored ArtsWalk festival in Hudson, N.Y. Other Coxsackie-Athens students who wrote one-act plays that were given "script-in-hand readings" during the festival are Amanda Chiesa, Katie Geiss, James Buchanan, Aliyah Poinsette, Caitlin Sitcer, and Allison Stanton. Their teacher is Bob Dial, 11th-grade English teacher at Coxsackie-Athens High School. Congratulations to all the student playwrights!
