In the Junior League of Washington’s 24rd Annual Youth Poetry Contest, eight of our Hart Middle School students won for eleven poems. Our writers swept the 6th grade prizes: 1st place to Kyrie Johnson, 2nd place Jayla Nelson (two of her poems tied each other), and 3rd place to Kyrie Johnson (his second poem). In 7th grade: 1st place to Aisha Hunter and 3rd place a tie between Gavin Wood and Aisha Hunter (her second poem). Another sweep in 8th grade: 1st place to Neo-Damien Chamblee, 2nd place a tie between Naeshaun Ford and Zaniyah Taylor, and 3rd place to Trus’ Stevens. This is particularly impressive because the Junior League contest had 161 entries from more than a dozen schools.
