Buckeye Community Hope Foundation Sponsor Update - June 2018
Writing makes a difference
By Mindy Farry, School Improvement Representative

Congratulations to the winners of the Buckeye Community Hope Foundation’s (BCHF) annual Writing Competition. This year’s contest asked the question: “Can One Person Change the World?” According to our student authors, the answer is a resounding, “Yes!”

Each school selected its individual winners at each grade level and submitted the school winners to BCHF. A team of four judges then scored each essay independently to determine the winners. The judges scored all papers on the Ohio Department of Education Writing Rubrics for each grade level.

In the sixth through eighth grade, students were reminded of the famous civil rights leader Mahatma Gandhi quote, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” The writing prompt asked them to describe one way they would like to change the world. Students were asked to explain the change and how they could help bring it about.

The winners in this division included Anna Krivoy from Constellation Schools: Old Brooklyn Community Middle. She was the 7th grade winner and the overall champion for the 6th-8th grade division!

When all scores were tallied and compared, one overall grand champion was selected. We are proud and excited to announce that Anna Krivoy from Constellation Schools: Old Brooklyn was named grand champion!

Upon meeting Anna to present her awards, it was found that she is an amazing young lady. She wrote about EMPATHY being able to change the world. When her principal suggested that part of the cash prize for their school be used for a pizza party for her class, she asked if the money could be used to buy art supplies for the school. Empathy, indeed! What an amazing young woman!

Special thanks to these students’ teachers for effectively working through the writing process of idea gathering, drafting, revising, critiquing, and editing. Their hard work not only benefited the students who were winners, but all of their students as they learn the importance of writing as they proceed in their education.
