2016 Poetry Out Loud Semifinals Results

We are pleased to announce the winners and the top performers from each period of yesterday’s Poetry Out Loud semifinals. The performances were excellent, and we look forward to the finals, which will be held during the long block on February 9th in the auditorium. Also, keep your eyes out for the Teacher’s Choice Awards, where the members of the English Department select a student for recognition from the semifinals – the awards will be posted in the English hallway over the next few days.

Congratulations to all of the semifinalists who delivered their poems so well yesterday! We are incredibly impressed, as ever.
