TALENT ABOUNDS among the pupils at Brooklyn Park Middle School, where six pupils have been honored for their achievements in the arts and sciences.

Matthew Dietz won first place in the multimedia contest sponsored by the Maryland Instructional Computers Coordinators Association. Matthew used his knowledge of biology and computer science to create a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation called "The Journey of a Chocolate Chip Cookie Through the Digestive Tract."

In recognition of his work, he received a certificate and a MICCA bag. He also earned $300 worth of software for Brooklyn Park Middle.

On April 9, the Women' s Club of Linthicum Heights Inc. will hold the awards ceremony for the winners of its Short Story and Poetry Writing Contest. Sixth-graders James Miller and Kelly Dashiell won first and second place in the poetry competition. James' work was titled "A Bug." Kelly's poem was called "Fairies." Leanne Holtzner of the eighth grade earned third place for her poem "Lost Love." "My Friend Binx," written by eighth-grader Jaimie Macey won first place in the short story competition. Erin Coolahan, also an eighth-grader, received an honorable mention for her story "My Grandfather."

Hard work and talent never go unrecognized for long, and it looks as if Brooklyn Park Middle is beginning to shine. Congratulations, and keep up the good work.
