Power of the Pen update

Congratulations of 8th grader Ellen for advancing to the state finals for Power of the Pen Tournament.  The state finals will take place at the College of Wooster on May 25th and 26th. 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. The tournament started with more than 8,000 students and is now down the the 700 best writers in the state which come from most counties in Ohio.
