Perrysburg students win prize at national contest

A team of Perrysburg students that designed an educational

game for preschoolers won a prize in the national TOYchallenge


The contest, developed by Astronaut Sally Ride to get students

interested in science, was held Thursday in San Diego. The

game created by Perrysburg students Pamela Twu, Ellen Steele,

Nick Ames, and Emma Kuhl was one of 69 games and toys

entered in the competition.

The Perrysburg students, who will begin ninth grade in the fall,

made a game to teach young children about nutritional

foods. Their game won the top prize in the educational toys

for preschoolers category. Each member of the team, coached

by teacher Stephanie Tanner, received books and games.
