In celebration of National Poetry Month, Westhampton Beach Middle School students participated in a blackout poetry contest, spearheaded by librarian Yvonne Perez. For the contest, students created poems by circling specific words, and redacting others, from pages taken out of torn or damaged library books. The district congratulates the winners Lauren Nathan, first place for Best Overall Poem; Mia Valenzuela, second place for Best Overall Poem; Hollie McAllister, first place for Best Artistic Poem; and Brooke Donahue, second place for Best Artistic Poem.
