Okawville Jr. High Patriots Pen Winners


Delaney Kuhn, JH Staff Writer

The Patriots Pen is a yearly, nationwide contest in the United States of America. Sixth, seventh, and eighth-graders can participate and practice patriotism and improve their writing skills. The theme for this year’s Patriots Pen was “‘How Can I be a Good American?” 

There were three winners from Okawville Jr. High School, all of which were in eighth grade. In first place was Jacob Ellison, in second place was Kayla Crouch, and in third place was Taylor Haacke. The overall nationwide winner, however, was seventh grade Joel Steele II from Crystal Middle School. Congratulations to all of the participants!
