As one of the many community-based projects in which Berkshire students had the chance to partner with local organizations, three of our very own Badger students earned high honors in the Geauga County Park’s Nature Writing Contest. All 7th graders, these students submitted writings or examples of poetry as part of online class assignments for Mrs. Zusy and Mrs. Turovsky. The winners were, in First Place for the adolescent poetry category, Elise Tiber, with her work A Dusky Dream. Receiving Honorable Mention in the adolescent poetry category was Amber Zeiler, with her work, A Heart is Where the Horse Is. Receiving Honorable Mention in the adolescent prose category was Justin Phillips, with his piece entitled: Seasons. These 7th grade students are to be commended for not only producing quality pieces of written work, but for having the courage to enter the contest sponsored by the Geauga County Parks, and finishing so highly in the process. In addition, each of our outstanding Berkshire writers will have the chance to read their works aloud at the 29th Annual Nature Arts Festival on August 2, 2020. Way to go, Elise, Amber and Justin, for your accomplishments!
