Once again Crestwood Power of the Pen students proved their power by winning nine awards and an honorable mention on Saturday at the District Tournament held at James A. Garfield Middle School. Placing first, above fifty-five other 7th graders competing from nine other schools, our very own Amelia Wysong also earned a Best of Round Award and a Best of Round Honorable Mention.
Scoring the highest possible rank points for all three rounds of writing, 8th grader Katie Fosnight won first place and two of the three possible Best of Round Awards. The entire 8th grade team took first place among nine other schools from Summit and Portage counties. Sara Miller continued Crestwood’s triumph by placing second. Competing against sixty other 8th graders, Zoe Catcott placed fourth and Lillian Bissell placed ninth.
Crestwood students continued to shine throughout the entire day as many of our alternates volunteered to help our host school who was in need of extra student “runners” thus playing an important role by assisting judges.
Congratulations again to all of our traveling team members for their wonderful contributions to Crestwood’s success.
