Nikki Delamotte Award for Outstanding Narrative Writing

JustWrite is honored to be a grant recipient of the Cleveland Foundation’s Nikki Delamotte Fund which was created in honor of the late Cleveland journalist, Nikki Delamotte.  

While Delamotte left this world, far too soon, it is our privilege to give an award in her honor.  She was an advocate for youth and writing, and we know she would have loved to see high school students across the state creating masterpieces with words-just like she did. 

This award honors her memory.
