Mackintosh Academy 2nd Grader wins National Poetry Competition

Eva Effress Roper, daughter of Lisa Effress and Tim Roper and 2nd grader at Mackintosh Academy, has won a national poetry competition.

Eva's teacher submitted her poem, "Night in the Forest," and the poem was selected from thousands of entries as one of the ten best in her division. The contest was held for students in grades K-9.  The poems were selected for their literary merit, creativity, and social significance. 

Creative Communication sponsors this contest to offer a creative outlet that honors our youth. Too often, the efforts of young writers are unrecognized and they lose their motivation to express themselves.  Creative Communication awards thousands of dollars to schools each year in classroom supplies with its Classroom Rewards Program to further encourage young people's writings, and over the past 20 years has given over $1 million in grants and awards to students, schools, and teachers.  Teachers, parents and students alike have been universally pleased with the impact this contest has on student writers.   

For more information about the contest, please contact Tom Worthen, Ph.D at Creative Communication, (435) 713-4411.  You can also email Dr. Worthen at
