OHA 8th grader Nika Berg has been awarded FIRST PLACE for her essay on Maya Angelou. Three 8th graders received HONORABLE MENTION: Buddy Levy, Sophia Chubatyy, and Arya Patel. Additionally, in the 7th-8th grade category, Evalina Bee Zerres was awarded SECOND PLACE for her moving essay about Chloe Kim.
