Power of the Pen

Congratulations to 7th grader Kevin, and 8th graders Ellen and Andrew for qualifying in the regional level Power of the Pen Tournament.  The regional competition took place at Padua Franciscan High School. Power of the Pen encourages schools to develop writing teams, allows young writers to meet, compete, and receive recognition and awards for excellence in three rounds of impromptu writing, and offers immediate feedback from teacher coaches who act as judges on the quality of their written expression. More than 8,000 students compete in formal Power of the Pen interscholastic writing tournaments in most counties in Ohio.
