Best of Round essays have been announced after the recent Power of the Pen competition in Lima, Ohio, where WSM's team took home several awards.
Skylar Sachs, already given first place in the competition, must have made quite an impression on the judges throughout the day. Each of her essays including "The Feminist Snowball Fight," "Dusty Tear Ducts," and "Butterflies in Position" were declared Best of Round in all three rounds.
Ziad Yassine's essay, "A Fatal Prophecy, or Is It?", was named as Director's Choice from all rounds.
Stay tuned for more good news from West Side's Power of the Pen team! Many of the West Side writers are advancing to the regional tournament on March 11th at Lourdes where they will compete against the top 50% of writers from 30 other schools in the region.
