Zoe Buettner

Several eighth grade students at Cherokee Heights Middle School wrote and entered a play in the Playwrights for Change National Contest. Zoe Buettner's play, The Box, won first prize in the regional contest hosted by the Madison Children's Theatre (CTM).  As such, not only will her play be entered in the national contest in San Francisco but CTM performed her play on April 27, both as a matinee and as an evening performance.

In addition to Zoe, the following students wrote plays, each including the theme of 'combating bullying': Isaiah Zingg, Teresa Monday, Jimesha Walker, Rhiannon Wilson, Zaryaa Howard, and Marcy Grant-Fohl (Marcy's and Rhiannon's plays received honorable mention).
