2015 Poetry Out Loud Semifinals Results

With snow days wiping out the semifinals date AND the original snow date, some schools’ POL competitions might have crumbled. Not ours. Excellent job today to all of the semifinalists, and thanks to all of the English Department members who helped make this event happen! We look forward to unveiling the Teacher’s Choice Awards over the next few days. But for now, we are glad to announce the top three performers in each of the seven periods, as well as the eight students who will move on to compete in the BHS Poetry Out Loud Finals on Wednesday, February 4.
