Pictured at left is Montanna Carpenter, OES 5th Grade student, who was recognized for 3rd place out of 579 students across the state in the KET Young Writers Contest. Montanna submitted an essay, "The Greatest Papaw Ever," about her grandfather, Buck Buckler, who drove a bus for Bath County Schools for many years.
The Young Writers Contest is a great opportunity to write for an authentic audience. Each story that meets contest guidelines will be read by a panel of judges and each child that enters will receive an official certificate after the winners have been selected.
The picture on the right shows the OES Young Editors group sponsored by Mrs. Robyn Meadows. This group of students explained their project to the Board and audience members.
