I’m proud to announce that our students recently won two more national poetry competitions:
Dorothy Moore won the Poetry Society of Virginia Student Poetry Contest. Hannah Srajer won the $500 Leonard Milberg Poetry Competition put on by Princeton University (and judged by their Creative Writing faculty which includes Pulitzer Prize winners CK Williams and Paul Muldoon). This is arguably the most prestigious high school poetry competition in the country.
Please congratulate Dorothy and Hannah, if you know them, as well as David Gilmer for his extra help with their poems.
