Best Overall Poem

Best World Language Poem
The high school Spoken Word Club selected the winners for Best Overall Poem and Best Artistic Poem:
Best Overall Poem Winners:
Best Artistic Poem:
The middle school Spanish Immersion students judged and translated the World Language entries for us.
Best World Language Poems:
And it doesn’t silence
I don’t want to be the same person they think I am.
The magic of a pen.
The students loved this poem, but said it does not translate well. So if you can read Spanish, enjoy!
The final category is Librarian’s Choice, because I simply couldn’t bear to let these two go unrecognized!
