The winner in first place is Miss Jaycee Young.  Congratulations Jaycee. Miss Monica Zear came in second, and Miss Marion Alamella came in third.   

They were all wonderful presenters. We had a group of students that were dynamic.  I want to encourage them to continue writing, continue putting themselves out there in competitions like this one.”

The winner received $200.  $100 and $50 were giving to second and third place respectively. The September celebrations committee promises to make the Patriotic Poetry Competition an annual event opened to the general  public.
