The Harding Middle School 7th & 8th grade Power of the Pen teams combined to finish 6th in the state in the creative writing competition held May 23 at the College of Wooster. Eighth-graders Veronica Lee and Casey Chanter led the way, finishing 25th and 26th, respectively, out of 350 8th-grade writers.
Only the top 10% of 7,000 writers statewide make it to the final round at Wooster. Harding's team qualified 11 of its 12 writers and Garfield Middle School 8th-grader Izzy Ostrowski also qualified.
Congratulations to all our talented writers and their advisers (Ruth Pangrace & Pam Sheils at Harding and Haley McDonough and Magge Bacher at Garfield).
