Power of the Pen

Power of the Pen is an interscholastic writing competition for Ohio students in grades seven and eight.  Students try out for Power of the Pen by responding anonymously to a series of 40 minute writing prompts.  Six students from each grade level are selected for the team based upon the writing prompt responses, and a few alternate team members are also chosen.  Team members and alternates are required to attend all writing practices, participate in discussion of students' responses to the weekly writing prompts, attend all competitions, and pay a student activity fee.
