Congratulations to the members of the Edison Power of the Pen team in their success at the district tournament held at Mt. Union on January 7th. These students competed against over 120 writers from nearby schools in three rounds of flash writing (timed writing in response to a cold prompt). Overall, our eighth-grade team placed 2nd out of twenty schools! Individual honors went to Julz Baltzly (12th place), Mia Whitlock (11th place), and Sarah Miller (4th place). Award-winners, along with several  other team members, will be moving on to the regional competition in March. These writers have shown amazing growth and talent, and the tournament season has just begun. We cannot wait to see all they accomplish!
