Congratulations to the Braelinn Grade-Level Poetry Recitation Winners. These students won at their respective grade levels in the school’s poetry recitation contest and will go on to compete at the county level next quarter. The reciters were judged on the following elements: difficulty of the poem, memorization and accuracy, stage presence, articulation, interpretation and style.
