Congratulations to senior Jade Maldonado and sophomore Julian Cheng who represented Bridgehampton School at the Poetry Out Loud regionals competition at Stony Brook University for the second consecutive year on February 12. Each student memorized and beautifully performed poems from the official POL anthology. They were accompanied by English teachers Mr. House and Ms. Wright and fellow high school students who took the ride up island to cheer on their classmates. And on the way, there was a good-luck photo op before a banner posted outside Hampton Library. Thanks to all for your support and encouragement. We look forward to growing our local program and competing in next year's competitions. All eyes are on the prizes: $35,000 in cash and almost certain college scholarships awarded to the national winners each April in DC. Want to step up and take the challenge in 2019?
