Hilliard City Schools

Anna with her awardCongratulations to Anna Kuck from Scioto Darby Elementary who placed third for all Ohio 2nd graders in the 1st Annual state Invention League Young Inventors competition at The Ohio State Fair. She presented her “Book Buddy” invention. 25,000 young inventors who placed in local competitions from across Ohio were narrowed by The Inventor’s League to just 500 invited to the state competition. Anna was awarded a scholarship, alumni status with the Invention League, and an invitation to compete at the 2018 National Inventor’s League Competition at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan in May.

Her mom said, “Anna would not have had the confidence to do this without the support of all of her awesome teachers at Scioto Darby, Mr. Travis Speakman, Mrs. Abby Cochran, and Mr. Nick Hodges, and Mrs. Carol Klochak.”
