On May 19, three MVS eighth graders competed in the Power of the Pen State Tournament after having qualified at the District and Regional competitions earlier this year.
Aleks ’27, Harpreet ’27, and Raaidha ’27 represented MVS in three 35-minute rounds of creative writing.
Harpreet qualified for a fourth, 30-minute final writing round and ended up placing ninth overall!
“2500 students from around all of Ohio began this competition earlier this year at the district division,” said MVS Power of the Pen coach and English teacher Debbie Voetberg. “These three emerged from that group to compete at the highest level, and now, Harpreet is in the top 10 of all 8th grade writers in the state. I am so proud of all they have accomplished!”
