TeenBuilding USA and its Executive Director, John Clark III are excited to announce the winners of the TeenBuilding USA West O'ahu Teen Time Capsule, an Essay & Short Story Creative Writing Contest. Overall, there were three winners in the competition open to all West Oahu high-school students earlier this year.
The first announced winner is Katie Bodnar.
In her essay submission, Katie demonstrated an outstanding ability to read, write, and communicate effectively.
These are critical life skills that can facilitate a lifetime of engagement, thoughtfulness, purpose, curiosity and wonder.
On behalf of today’s community, as well as future members of our society, TeenBuilding USA is grateful for Katie’s contribution
Katie accepted the challenge, adapted to changes, and achieved awards far beyond the prizes from TeenBuilding USA, which include a laptop computer; a copy of Getting Out: Expert Advice for Today’s Teens; and a framed certificate of achievement.
Katie has proven to herself and others that she is, indeed an academic leader!
Her parents are very proud.
Please join us in congratulating Katie!
