"Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers." - Ray BradburyWriting is thinking. Writing is learning. Writing is argument. Writing is everything. This year, in the Buckeye Community Hope Foundation's Writing Challenge, student writers discovered that writing is thinking, learning, arguing and everything. Over 400 students in 45 buildings participated in this year's writing challenge. Elementary students read The Buzz on Bees and responded to this non-fiction work about bees and their place in the ecosystem of the earth. Middle school students read Chew on This, a non-fiction text about the production of food. High school students read a series of articles about whether or not a college education is worth the money. Each school selected a winning essay from each grade band for submission to BCHF. A team of five readers read those essays and scored them on a rubric. Each essay was read a minimum of two times and scores combined to identify the winners. Congratulations to the following students who are this year's Writing Challenge winners. Student winners were awarded with trophies; rewards were also given for schools and teachers.
