All of the school’s first semester English classes participated in the event before winter break. Caitlin Christensen, a senior, finished in third place, and Sophia Larson-Wickman took second place. The winner from the regional contest advances to the state to compete against six other regions’ poets for a trip to Washington, D.C. for the national contest.
