Timed Writing and Research Project Planned March 8 at SWOSU-Sayre


SWOSU-Sayre will host its annual Timed Writing and Research Project contest on Thursday, March 8, on the Sayre campus.

The Timed WARP is open to all area high school juniors, who will compete for SWOSU-Sayre scholarships. The event allows participating students to receive valuable feedback on their research and writing skills, according to Judy Haught, language and literature instructor at SWOSU-Sayre.

The competing students have a full agenda of workshops, research and writing time before submitting their entry for judgment. The event begins with registration at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 2 p.m.

In conjunction with this student event, the SWOSU staff will offer several workshops for visiting teachers:

  • Terry Ford (English) - workshop on “What H.S. students need to know for a college composition course.
  • Holly Hernandez (Business) - workshop on “educational web sites”
  • April Miller (Librarian) – workshop on book crafts

There will be a complimentary lunch provided in the Bulldog Café where bingo and a pool tournament will also be held and prizes awarded. 

“This is a great full day of fun and activity built around a serious writing competition for local high school students,” Haught said.

Students and teachers who are interested are urged to contact Haught at 580.28-5533, extension 159.
