Pugilists of poetry

By Nancy Gutierrez

There were approximately 100 students trying out for the Poetry and Prose competition at Rocky Hill Elementary School in December. Students from each grade level chose a piece of literature to recite for the preliminary round. Just 55 students were selected to compete in the Jan. 13 contest.

The Rocky Hill finalists include: Victoria Burkett reciting the Gettysburg Address; Alisa Carstens reciting Giraffes Can't Dance; Danielle Jacobs reciting Sick; Elizabeth Mitchel, Laken Taylor and Katelyn Maurer reciting A Bad Case of the Giggles; Logan Naccarato, Jared Raffel and Jacob Mead reciting Drump the Grump; and Karyn Davis reciting King Ferdinand's Remarks.
