Olentangy Middle School Students Wield the Power of the Pen

Students from two Olentangy middle schools competed in the Power of the Pen competition last Saturday.  The Power of the Pen is Ohio’s award winning educational enhancement program devoted to excellence in creative writing.  Nearly 300 seventh and eighth grade students competed in this district tournament.  Students who rank in the top 50 percent of finishers will participate in a regional qualifier.  Congratulations and good luck to these students from Olentangy Shanahan Middle School and Olentangy Berkshire Middle School who devote time each week to writing and sharing stories together.  We hope all will move on to regionals!
