Congratulations to the winners of the 4th Annual Poetry Out Loud Haldane High School competition: Lucy Austin and Isabella Convertino. The Literary Magazine sponsored this contest, during which students recited poems from famous classical and contemporary authors. Both winners did very well at the regional competition on February 6th at SUNY New Paltz.
Special thanks to Professor Jeffrey McDaniels (pictured above). Professor McDaniels, who teaches writing at Sarah Lawrence College, helped both Haldane students prepare for their regional poetry recitation through a Grant from the Haldane School Foundation. Thanks to all judges: Professor McDaniels, Mr. Alm, Dr. Villanti, and Haldane Poetry Out Loud alumna, Lindy Labriola.
Poetry Out Loud is a nationwide poetry recital competition open to all students in grades 9-12 in the United States. Last year over 10,000 high school students participated in New York State alone. The final competition at the national level is held every year in Washington D.C.
Dr. Richter and the Literary Magazine are sponsors to this competition. The winners, judges, and all students who participated in this year's competition did a wonderful job!
