8th Grade Poetry Contest Winners

Congratulations Poetry Contest Winners!

Over ten teachers, including three language arts teachers from St. Joseph High School, judged the packet of poems voted the best in each LA class. Poems written by these four 8th graders received the most judges' votes for best poems overall.

1st place: Megan Hollerbach for her poem, "Hit and Run"
2nd place: Kirsten Miazga for her poem, "Star Gazing"
3rd place (tied): Trinity Sharkey for "Laundry" & Olivia Trivedi for "Metamorphosis"

These winners' poems will be displayed at Forever Books in downtown St. Joseph, so be sure to look for them when you stop in to the bookstore this summer. Winners also received bookstore gift certificates.

If you see these girls in the hallway, be sure to congratulate them!
