Elementary school students at one Harford County school used "The Force" in their writing. 

The students at Forest Hill Elementary were asked to participate in a voluntary writing contest related to the Star Wars universe. Participants could write an article, story poem or whatever they wanted. The students had to include in their writing themes of hope, freedom and good choices.

Two winners were selected from each grade level. On Star Wars Day, May 4, faculty and staff dressed up as imperials to capture the winners. 

The winners had their pictures taken as if they were their own Star Wars action figures.
