Creative writing competitions for students

Seventh graders Tess Savage and Ruthy Gerstenberger placed first and third, respectively, in the “Real Women” Creative Writing Competition for Grades 5-12. The competition was sponsored by the County of Hawaiʻi Committee on the Status of Women in celebration of "National Womenʻs History Month." Students wrote about a significant female who has influenced their lives. The essays were judged by representatives from many sectors of our community, including educators, politicians, business leaders, journalists, and retirees.

The winning compositions were compiled into a booklet and presented to the essay winners, their "Real Woman, " teachers, and principals at the recent awards luncheon, along with prizes and certificates.
