Congratulations to the NHS Poetry Out Loud finalists and winners! On January 26th, seven high school finalists participated in the Poetry Out Loud school contest. School finalists were L-to-R Jonathan Coco, Tess Maguire, Oliva Bowlin, Amanda Weydt, Erica Curtin, Bobby Schultze and Abigail Quinn. The student winners were Tess Maguire, School Champion and Amanda Weydt, Second Place. The competition, presented in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, is part of a national program that encourages high school students to learn about great poetry through memorization, performance, and competition. This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage.
