February 16, 2016
Winners of the 2016 Baaaaad Valentine’s Poem Contest were announced today during A lunch by English teacher Meg Bell. The 25 finalists were awarded with bags of chocolate and Valentine’s Day treats, with the top three poets winning a $20, $30 or $50 Target gift card.
Zoe Gray (’16) took first, with Kennedy Snyder (’17) taking second and Natalia Ayoub (’17) placing third.
