EAST PRAIRIE, MO (KFVS) - Thirteen students at Warren E. Hearnes were chosen to be published in the 2013 edition of the "Young American Poetry Digest," sponsored by the National Schools Project.
Students of all ages submitted poetry to this national project, and a panel of educators evaluated the overall quality of the poems based on student's age and grade level. They also took into consideration: creativity, age-appropriate language, sensory and figurative images, structure, and poetic techniques.
A copy of the published book will be available at the WEH library when it is released in the fall.
The students' participation in the national contest was made possible by Jayna Holley (4th Grade) and Michelle Anthuis (Librarian). Not pictured: Carla Kelley (5th Grade).
