Five students in the Region 14 Applied Technology Center at ConVal High School placed in the top five at the New Hampshire Educators Rising Competition and will travel to Washington, D.C., to compete at the National Educators Rising Conference June 28 to July 1. 

The Region 14 ATC serves the ConVal School District, Jaffrey-Rindge School District, and Mascenic Regional School District.

ConVal seniors Ella Morris, Emily Casey Hughes and Isabel Andres, Mascenic Regional High School senior Angelina McCabe and Conant High School junior Jaedin Bryan earned their place at the national competition at Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth in March.

During the competition, students competed in various categories that challenged them to try various educational identities, lead a lecture, debate an ethical educational dilemma and more.

Hughes and Andres wrote a pre-K children’s book for the Children’s Literature category, “Rabbit’s Day Out,” an interactive felt board story that earned them third place.

Bryan wrote and delivered a speech about when she knew she wanted to become an educator for the Educators Rising Moment category, earning fourth place.
