Braves earn Superior in Power of the Pen State Tournament

IHMS at Power of the Pen State Tournament 2019

Indian Hill Middle School (IHMS) congratulates four students for competing in the Power of the Pen State Tournament Friday, May 24, on the campus of the College of Wooster. IHMS students Sophia Chen, Maria Nath, Keegan Sheanshang, and Joy On competed against more than 400 writers representing schools across Ohio.

“Our students created 12 new works of fiction and earned three Superior ratings,” said IHMS teacher Dr. Kim Given. “Every single writer earned honors for at least one of their stories. It was an amazing day to come together with so many other middle school students committed to creative writing.”

In addition to the writing competition, students had the opportunity to see New York Times best-selling author Jason Reynolds deliver the keynote presentation.
