Jasmin Morse, Veritas Web Editor

On January 20 in the RMS/RHS Lecture Hall, Rockland High held its annual poetry recitation competition.

This event was hosted by Rockland Schools’ English Department Head, Carol Cahill. The event was made up of two rounds; in each round contestants from all grade levels recited one poem in front of three judges, who were Karen Bonn, Bill Boyer, and Jake Carey.

After many good performances, sophomore, John Ellard came in third place. Sophomore, Adiza Alasa came in second. First place winner was senior, Genesis Rojas.

Rojas will soon be participating in the regional competition that will take place in South Yarmouth. She will compete for a chance to go on to the State Finals.
