Congratulations to Sydney Barlow for becoming the 2019 Mid-Hudson Regional Poetry Out Loud Champion!

Please join me in congratulating Sydney Barlow for becoming the 2019 Mid-Hudson Regional Poetry Out Loud champion!  Sydney and Aine Hunt both represented WPHS at the regional competition, which was held last night at SUNY Purchase.  Sydney, who will participate in the NY State Championship Competition in March, won for her reading of the following poems:

 

“Cartoon Physics, part 1” by Nick Flynn

“And If I Did, What Then?” by George Gascoigne

“Weighing In” by Rhina P Espaillat

 

Also, a big thank you to Dennis Polanco for facilitating our local competition and coaching our winning students!
