West Branch Power of the Pen teams had a very successful year and are not done yet. These writers have worked since October on finding their creative voice and developing important writing skills for life. More than 7,500 students in the state of Ohio compete in Power of the Pen. In January our WBMS writers competed at South Range Middle School, and 6 students qualified for regionals. In February at the regional tournament at Malone University, Paige Miller and Courtney McKenzie both qualified to compete at state, which will be help at Wooster College on May 22nd. Great job writers!
