We offer our warmest congratulations to Grass Valley Charter School seventh grader Travis Galpin! Travis was the top scoring seventh graders and one of three highest-scoring overall winners of the annual Nevada County schools Writing Tournament, coordinated by the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office. 

Students were judged on their expository, creative, and letter writing skills. Travis also placed first in letter-writing; the assignment was to write a letter to the editor of local paper about whether there should there be a teen section in the newspaper. 

We're not surprised that Travis knew what to do given an authentic audience, and we are delighted that his high quality work is being celebrated in his community!
