September 7, 2018—Congratulations to Onaway third grade teacher and risk-taker Jim Sweeney who is a finalist in the Scriptapalooza international screenwriting competition! Over the summer, Mr. Sweeney submitted three scripts to the Los Angeles-based competition. Two of his scripts were selected from nearly 500 entries to be among the competition's 14 finalists. ”IB pushes us to bring balance to our lives. While I love teaching, I also love screenwriting," Mr. Sweeney said. "This summer, I took a leap and shared my scripts publicly. I am truly excited that Scriptapalooza has recognized my passion and talent.” Best of luck, Mr. Sweeney! Your commitment to your dreams is inspiring to us all.
