COLUMBUS – State Representative Jena Powell (R-Arcanum) this week presented a House Resolution congratulating the Tippecanoe Middle School ‘Power of the Pen’ team for winning the school’s first ever state title, beating out 166 other teams for the honor.
“I’m so proud of the TMS ‘Power of the Pen’ team for this amazing achievement,” said Powell. “Your talent and creativity is so inspiring, and you have made our district proud with this win.”
The ‘Power of the Pen’ team consists of seventh and eighth grade writers who are given three never-before-seen creative prompts and have 40 minutes per round to create a story centered around each prompt. The team attends three competitions a year – district, regional, and state – and writers must earn their right to make it to the next round.
