National Poetry Month Contest Winner!

Congratulations to Sierra Neely, our National Poetry Month Contest winner. Sierra, a 6th grader, submitted a Blackout Poem (Blackout Poetry is when you take a random page from a book, newspaper, or magazine, circle certain words, and black out everything else. This creates new meaning to existing text, and is a fun way to get creative)

Here is Sierra's winning entry:

What is the bottom
to their joke?
Going to the ravine
and beating the jacks.
She new better
But it was true.

Congratulations to Sierra!

And thank you to everyone who submitted a Blackout Poem or participated in any of our other National Poetry Month activities! --AJB
