Three Norwalk Catholic School students won individual awards and the seventh grade placed fourth in a recent Power of the Pen competition.
Emily Cardwell won second and Rachel Rhoad placed tenth in the seventh grade competition. Jacob Caprara tied for fourth place in the eighth grade division.
Teams from 15 area schools participated in the competition, which consists of three 40-minute rounds of creative writing. A prompt is given for each round and students complete a story based on the prompt.
Cardwell, Rhoad and Caprara will advance to the next level of competition, with seventh graders Samantha Pelham and Tim Cardwell and eighth grader Erika Ghazoul.
Brooke Meyer and Christina Cruz coach the NCS Power of the Pen team.
