Senior yearbook editor and IL360 film review writer Sydney Schoonmaker earned honorable mention accolades in JEA’s write off competition at the Orlando convention.
“Sydney’s award marks only the second time a writer from Inland Lakes has won an award at the national convention,” adviser Tim Morley said. “I am super excited for Syd.”
Schoonmaker and her writing partner, fellow senior Cameron Everingham, created their regular review column during the first week of school as the IL360 website was just getting started. Since then, they have reviewed a variety of popular and not so popular films.
“When I went to write my first review, I had to research how to do it,” Schoonmaker said. “Since then, they’ve just been getting better and better.”
The students who attended the convention saw the new Goosebumps movie on Saturday night, so expect a review of that in the next few days.
