The Sharon Lustbader Scholarship
The Sharon Lustbader Scholarship was established in honor of Midwood High School's illustrious creative writing teacher. Sharon Lustbader continues to be the cornerstone of Midwood High School's young literati. She is, for hundreds and hundreds of students, a foundation of cosmopolitanism--not only intellectually and spiritually, but sartorially.
No heel is too high as long as the stay is reliable.
You may or may not understand this Confucian wisdom, but you must understand that Mrs. Lustbader's constancy, intelligence, wit, and beauty continue to inspire and cultivate young writers. As well, it is worth noting, that she has not aged a day past twenty-three. The Broome Street Review is proud to present this award annually to one high school senior from Midwood High School whose talents best represent and honor Sharon Lustbader.

Su Ting Wang
Su Ting, our 2012 Sharon Lustbader scholar, will be studying science and literature at Hunter College this fall. Making an emotional connection with the reader is of utmost importance to her craft. Her favorite book is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn". Su's short story "Running On and On..." was published in TBSR no.5.
Elizabeth Lewis, the 2014 winner of the Sharon Lustbader Writing Prize, will be attending Beloit College in the fall. Her story "Waiting for Spring" is a thoughtful meditation on the cycle of life and death, aging and expectation. Using spring and a preponderance of crocus flowers as metaphor, Elizabeth's clear, poetic prose sung a wistful and evocative song.
