John Jay Student Honored as Playwright by NYSTEA

Congratulations to John Jay student Jenna Zipparo for being was selected as a winning playwright in the New York State Educational Theatre Association’s Playwright Contest.  This is an impressive achievement as only a handful of winners are selected from the state.  Her play, which she wrote as part of the Theatre II course, will be performed at the NYSTEA Student Conference in January.

The play topic required by NYSTEA, was “The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side."  Jenna’s play, The Perfect Plan, features farmers, two young boys tempted by money, and it teaches an important lesson about not taking things for granted.  Bravo, Jenna!  For more information visit:
