On January 10th, a team of Malvern Middle School students traveled to the University of Mount Union for a Power of the Pen tournament. Power of the Pen is a creative writing competition for middle school students. Ninety-three seventh grade students from area schools participated in the tournament with Malvern’s own Josie Ford coming in 3rd overall. Josie will advance to the Eastern Ohio Regional Tournament to be held at Malone University on Saturday, March 7th. Brooke Marinucci is the advisor.
This year’s 2020 Power of the Pen State Tournament will take place May 21-22, at the College of Wooster.
Margaret Peterson Haddix, author of the Missing series, will speak on Friday afternoon. Students will have an opportunity to talk with Haddix during the book signing portion of the program!
