Treasure Mountain students earn writing awards
June 5, 2012
Eighth-grade students from Treasure Mountain Junior High School took first and third place in the Summit County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee Story contest earlier this month. Martina Herbert earned first place, while Xavier Price took third place. The students were also awarded cash prizes. "This is the second year our students entered the contest and the second year they swept the awards given at the county level," said Principal Bob O’Connor in a press release, "It’s impressive because out of all the students competing, ours typically have the least experience with agriculture." Students practiced writing stories in TMJHS teacher Julie Hooker’s English and Leadership classes, where they learned how to research and cite sources.
