The Amy Fiske Scholarship and Creative Writing Awards

Friends of the Medfield Library congratulates the Medfield High School students who have been awarded its annual writing contests for prose and poetry ($500 for each prize) and the Amy Fisk Scholarship ($2000 prize) competition. The Amy Fiske Scholarship and Writing Prizes were established to honor the memory of Amy Fiske, a MHS student who worked at the Medfield Public Library prior to her untimely passing in 1985. In sponsoring these awards, The Friends of the Medfield Library hope to encourage young writers throughout their teenage years and to promote interest in writing and the language arts.
