The six members of the Power of the Pen Team at Warren’s Lincoln PK-8 School placed second overall, out of 15 area schools, in the district tournament in January.
As a top three seeded team, our six creative writers received a plaque and medals as a team.
Three writers qualified in the top 10 out of 52 writers and one writer qualified in the top 15 out of 52 writers.
Four of the team’s writers advanced to the Feb. 26 regional tournament. The team is waiting for the results of the regional tournament to see in any members advances to the state tournament.
Kelly Notar has served as team advisor since 2016. During that time, at least one writer has qualified to regionals and one qualified for state.
This was the first time a Lincoln team places in the top three.
