Student achiever: Caroline Kim, 10

School: Clarksville Elementary School

Special achievement: Placed second in the Maryland State Music Teachers Association piano competition. She competed against 14 other students, all playing Haydn Concertino and Komponiert 1760. Caroline, who is a fan of difficult pieces, said Haydn's was one of the most challenging she's ever played.

What she says about the achievement: "At first, I didn't think I was going to win because it's one of my worst parts."

If she couldn't play music: Don't worry, said mother Judy Kim: "She's also a brown belt in karate."
