Paris ISD Scenario Writers Win Big


Paris ISD students recently submitted their writing scenarios to the Future Problem Solving Program. Scenario Writing is a component of the International Future Problem Solving Program. Students write futuristic short stories based on the topics for the year and set at least twenty years in the future. They established the story on a present challenge, and a proposed solution extrapolated twenty or more years into the future and has caused unforeseen challenges for that new environment. They then base the story on those new challenges. Finally, they submit the top three placing stories in each division for International Competition. This year’s topics have been Neurotechnology, Water Supply, Building Green, Insects, and Mining.

Paris High School student Davis Green placed first in the senior division and will represent Texas at the International Competition, and Grace Moore, who placed third. PHS student Sophia Hamer placed fifth, and students Hana Syed and Anna Lehenbauer received honorable mention. Sandra Strom coaches PHS students.

Paris Junior High School student Akshay Bacharanianda placed first in the middle division and will represent Texas at the International Competition. Other PJH students who placed are Hannah Cunningham, fifth place, and Caroline Gillem with an honorable mention. Eva Dickey coaches PJH students.

All students will attend the Texas Future Problem Solving Bowl in Waco on April 8-10 to receive their awards. In addition, Green, Moore, and Bacharanianda will represent Texas at the International Competition later this summer.
