2 seventh-graders honored for lyrics
Seventh-grade students Kelly Ramsey and Chelsea Legg were honored at the Hartselle City school board meeting Monday night.
The students wrote lyrics about energy conservation as a project for their advanced English class. Their song placed first out of 2,500 entries in Alabama's Igniting Creative Energy Contest.
The state competition is part of a national challenge for students in grades K-12. ICE challenges young people to develop their creative learning capacity using science projects, essays, stories, artwork, photographs, music, video and Web site projects.
Ramsey and Legg won $1,000 for Hartselle Junior High School and individual MP3 players at the state competition. Ramsey said that she was both "shocked" and "amazed" to win, but that mostly the contest was just a lot of fun.
