Congratulations, Ashwini Kulkarni – Poetry Out Loud State Finalist!!

This morning, in Framingham, on the strength of her excellent recitations of Zacuanpapalotls by Brenda Cardenas and Life Cycle of Common Man by Howard Nemerov, Ashwini Kulkarni (Class of 2015) was selected to move on to the state finals for the 2015 Poetry Out Loud competition. After this weekend, there will be only 26 students remaining in the Massachusetts competition, out of the 20,000+ who participated this year statewide.

The competition in Framingham was excellent, and was easily the toughest semifinals competition in Framingham to date.

On Sunday, March 8, Ashwini will present her poems in the Old South Meeting House in Boston, and will compete for the state championship. Between now and then, she must memorize a third poem, which she will present if she moves on into the final six performers. Good luck, Ashwini!

At this year’s semifinals, BHS was also recognized as being one of the exemplary Poetry Out Loud programs in the state, having participated for the past nine years.
