Sayre Student Wins Timed WARP


Southwestern Oklahoma State University at Sayre recently hosted the seventh annual Timed WARP (Writing and Research Project) for high school juniors, who competed for scholarships by researching and writing essays over current topics.  

Laramy Edwards of Sayre High School won first place and a $600 scholarship with her essay entitled “Problems Looking in the Mirror.” An essay entitled “Drug Testing High School Students, Helpful or Hurtful?” earned Will Fuchs of Merritt High School a second place scholarship of $500. Eric Evanson of Sayre High School placed third and winner of a $400 scholarship with his essay entitled “Legal Tattoos.”

Also at the event, English teachers from the area went on an electronic scavenger hunt for continuing education points, and both teachers and students competed for door prizes throughout the day. Lunch and games in the Bulldog Café rounded out the day.
