YOUTH WRITE ABOUT PEACE: Trumbull County English teachers had their students this spring write to the question, “If you could speak to your elected officials face to face, what would you ask them to do to bring peace to our Valley?” The question was part of the upcoming 2014 Peace in the Valley Celebration, which hopes for peace and less violence. More than 30 essays were sent to the English faculty of KSU-Trumbull. The faculty members will judge the entries over the summer and select the top ten for the local peace celebration. Those writers will be notified and will be seated in a special section of the Warren Amphitheater at the Sept. 21 International Peace Celebration. The top three essayists will be called one by one to come forward to read their recommendations to the Valley’s elected officials and to everyone else present. Participants and winners will receive cash awards.
