Patriot's Pen Award Winners
In October, the 8th grade American History classes participated in a national essay contest titled "The Patriot's Pen," sponsored by the VFW. Pat Straley, of the North Olmsted branch of the VFW graciously offered to be our local sponsor. Seventeen student essays were selected for district competition and were reviewed by Pat and other volunteers for possible submission to the regional competition.
Although none of the selected essays were chosen for the next level, three students earned special recognition for their work. Mr. Laposky and Mrs.Damer would like to thank Pat and the North Olmsted VFW for being our sponsor and we look forward to participating next year.
The students selected for district competition: Morgan Way, Samantha Manaloff, Leonardo Bonacci, Yasmin Mayich, Seth Purohit Martha Kolpein, Evan Lei, Abigail Mallett, Sabrina Bucaro, William Beach, Parker Hartup, Tyler Fortune, Olivia Fietklewic,z Genevieve Konrad, Samantha Robertson, Emma Convery and Seth Eaton.
Morgan, Leonardo and Seth had the top three essays which earned a monetary award from the VFW.
