2002 and 2003 Winner of the Jessie Withrow Prize for Excellence: Bradley Treuer

Bradley TreuerBradley Treuer is a senior at Steller Secondary School. He is the acting president of the Steller Environmental Club, a writer for Perfect World, and a participant in Anchorage Youth Court. Bradley's other hobbies include playing tennis and riding his bike in the summer and skiing and snowboarding in the winter. He also somehow manages to find time to pursue his true passion -- writing.

Bradley's all-time favorite writer (and personal superhero) is Philip Pullman.

In the future, Bradley dreams of making enough money through writing to be able to move to a small, secluded beach community and live happily ever after. That is, after first spending his college years in a large, crowded beach community.
