The eighth graders of Freedom Middle School are celebrating a big win this week as two of their own take top spots in the OKCTE Young Writers Contest. The OKCTE (Oklahoma Council of Teachers of English) hosts this contest annually, with this year's topic being "Turn on the light." There were six possible categories for students to choose from and the comic strip category was dominated by Madison Kirkpatrick taking first place and Michael Page taking second out of over 200 entrants.

Madison was caught speechless when first told of her achievement, while Michael argued that he could not possibly have won anything at all. Nevertheless, both students and their teacher, Ms. Tyree, have been invited to Oklahoma City for a winners' banquet in April and their comics will appear in the annual anthology.
