There were no cleats or batsor hockey pucks at LourdesCollege on Tuesday, March 8, butthere was plenty of competitionwith trophies and braggingrights as prizes. The athleteswere students competing in theRegional competition of thePower of the Pen. Representing33 schools in 11 counties, morethan 200 seventh and eighthgrade writers came to write inwhat local chairperson Anna-Marie Adamson calls the “Super Bowl of writing.”“This is a wonderfulopportunity for good writersto show off their skills,” sheexplained. “They’ve performedwell at the District level, and arehoping to go on to the State level.They are the best of the best!”The program, in its 25thyear,was the brainchild of the currentexecutive director, Dr. LorraineB. Merrill. She started what was
rst called Olympics of the Pen,
with the idea of recognizingthe skills and abilities of goodstudent writers, much as studentathletes are acknowledged.Through the years, she hasobtained funding support frommajor foundations an this year the Power of the Pen activitieswere underwritten by ProMedica.
The program is currently Ohio’s
largest educational enhancementprogram and operates only in
Ohio.
Lourdes College PresidentDr. Robert Helmer welcomedparticipants at the start of theprogram. He asked the studentshow many of them had ever seen hieroglyphics, read theDeclaration of Independence or Harry Potter Books. He drewcheers and applause when heasked how many had listenedto Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber songs (more cheers and squealsthere!). He told the group, “Thenyou already know the power of the pen. You know that somebodyhad an idea, put it into words andonto paper to share with others.You know how important thatis!”The format of the competition
is simple. Students, identied
only by numbers, write responsesto prompts formulated by the
state ofce of the Power of the
Pen. Each grade level respondsto three prompts and the promptsare different for both grade levels.(example prompts: “Monstersdon’t really hide under beds.Show how they may hide behindsmiles.” “What did you learn inschool today?”) The studentshave 40 minutes to answer eachprompt, knowing the judges arelooking for creativity, realisticdialogue, plot and character development in their writings.The judges (teachers andPower of the Pen coaches)read and judge small groups of writing samples. They awardquality points for each piece of writing and rank them from bestto worst in each group. Judges areencouraged to write commentsfor each entry, pointing outstrengths and weaknesses of the writing. Staffers collect andtabulate the ballots and winnersare named.Several Sylvania studentsparticipated in this year’scompetition. Timberstone Junior High School eighth grader 
Michael Burcheld enjoys
writing, especially personalnarratives, and says he thinksabout pursuing a writing career.Teammates Mackenzie Glassand Nikita Naveen, both seventhgraders, were happy to be part of the team. Mackenzie appreciatesthat the competition and practiceleading up to the tournaments“makes us better writers,” andNikita says she enjoys having “aplace to do what we do best writing.” Sara Young, also aTimberstone seventh grader, likes
being challenged. “It’s fun to nd
something to do that is interestingand makes me happy.”The Timberstone coach,Sarah Marshall, Timberstonesixth grade English teacher, hadreason to be happy even beforeTuesday’s competition. Her teams of seventh and eighthgraders each placed in the Top15 at the District competition inFebruary and were also named
Top Overall Teams at that meet.
At Lourdes, the seventh andeighth grade teams each placedsecond, and the Timberstone
teams were named Top Overall
Teams. Ms. Marshall had a goodsized trophy to take back to theschool as proof of their victory.McCord Junior HighSchool was also representedby several students, includingParker Stevens, who found thecompetition “an opportunity toshow your creativity.”Team Coach Julie Kern, alsoa sixth grade English teacher,pointed to Arbor Hills teammember Josh Pawelczyk as theperfect example of a Power of the Pen success story. “He is aNLL wrestling champion and isa member of a Christian band.He is a busy kid but he loves theopportunity to be creative.”Josh admits that he loves thewriting. “My parents wanted
me to do it, and I nd that it
takes a bit more preparationthan wrestling does. I think myteammates respect me for what Ido with Power of the Pen. Rightbefore competition, I get myself ‘psyched up’ or get ‘into the
zone.’ I nd myself thinking in
metaphors, and reading more, if Ihave time. I pray to get ready for competition. I like to write storiesabout music; maybe when I growup I will write music and lyrics.”The competition ended with
the awarding of certicates and
trophies. Sylvania schools andstudents were well representedon the stage during the awardspresentation.

Here’s the scoop onanother of Sylvania’shistorians. Trini Wenningergrew up in the Southwest,where her love of historydeveloped while doingliving history programs.She moved to Sylvaniaand has immersed herself in local history. She co-authored “Images of America: Sylvania” withGaye Gindy, publishedby Arcardia Publishing in2006, and also wrote twobooks related to LauraIngalls Wilder and herdaughter Rose WilderLane.A historian by degree,Trini and her family livein a historic home indowntown Sylvania builtin 1902. With numerousowners and boardersbefore her family, thishouse has a specialappeal. Trini doesn’t mindthe quirks that come alongwith older homes - thesqueaky floorboards, non-standard sized windowsand doors, the lack of closet space, or the narrowstairs. She feels it justgives them character.She is much youngerthan many other historylovers and admits it’s rareto find individuals of hergeneration who appreciatethe past. In the last fifteenyears that Trini has beeninvolved in this area, shehas seen a decrease of people of all ages interestedin history. It saddens her,especially that studentsare graduating fromAmerican schools with anextremely loose grasp onAmerican history. Is therea way to make it moreinteresting to youngerpeople? She said thatunfortunately, our systemis set up for children tomindlessly memorizehistorical facts. Beyondschool, many children getlittle exposure to history.Much of what they areexposed to is sugar-coated. Children need tobe able to place historicalfacts into context and theymust be able to ask whythings happened.This fan of historyenjoys dressing up inperiod costumes forreenactments, andhas appeared in manySylvania historical tours.She thinks all of thewomen she has portrayedare interesting but oneof her favorite roles wasthat of a post-Civil Warera military wife in theSouthwest. Of the womenwho traveled west in thelate 1800s, some found ita thrilling adventure, andothers found it the mostinhospitable place onearth.When asked whatfamous people of historyshe would enjoy havingover for dinner, Trinidecided on two she wouldvery much like to talkto. Louis Bromfield andRose Wilder Lane wereboth authors with a deeppassion for Americanfreedom and she assumesthey’d get along quitewell and have a lot to talkabout over dinner. Trinialso imagines they’d bothrant and rave about thegovernment. She wouldhave lots of questions toask Bromfield about hisfarm in Ohio.A woman of manyinterests, Trini has taughtgenealogy workshopsat the Sylvania HeritageMuseum. She advisesthe most important thingeveryone should knowabout researching theirancestors, is to be readyfor surprises - both goodand bad. You may findout a family legend is notquite as legendary or arelative was not as perfectas everyone thought. Thismay also not sit well witholder family memberswho may still be living.So, you may want to bediscreet with what youdiscover, she notes.This talented authoris currently researchingthe history of the ToledoFarmers’ Market andplans to write a book thatcombines its history, alongwith photos, recipes,and shopping tips. She isexcited about the project,as it combines two of herinterests - history and localfood. If you have anythingto share about Toledo’sFarmers’ Market, shewelcomes contact throughthe historical society atsylvaniahistory@gmail.com or 419-318-9632.
