Power of the Pen Team Places Third in Regional Competition
The Power of the Pen results are in from this year's Regional Competition and Laurel's team of Eighth Grade girls performed remarkably!
Despite being a small but mighty team of four, Shaliz Bazldjoo '24, Karma Abboud '24, Kaitlyn Ernst '24 and Madeline Malbasa '24 placed an impressive third in the overall online competition. In addition, Shaliz took 8th place individually and Karma took 5th place following their "Best of Round'' awards for their stories at the first competition of the year. Shaliz also won the "Best of the Best'' award, which means her writing will be published next year in the Book of Winners. Unfortunately, the State Competition has been cancelled this year but we are so proud of how far this team has come!
