These HMS students submitted their original poems to the Northeast Texas Poetry in Schools contest along with over 700 other students across the region. The contest provides students with the opportunity to express themselves through writing and learn about the art form of poetry.
A panel of judges consisting of local writers and artists selected three poems from each grade level. The winners read their work aloud to an audience of teachers, peers, friends and family at an awards ceremony at Region 7 ESC. Winning poems were also published in the annual Northeast Texas Poetry in Schools Anthology.
