Several students representing Divine Savior Academy recently won high honors in the latest WordWright Challenge, a competition for American high school students requiring close reading and analysis of many different kinds of prose and poetry.
Juniors Sophia Baldeon and Miranda Fernandez both earned near perfect scores and placed among the 42 highest-scoring eleventh graders in the entire country. Freshmen Nicolas Jimenez, Chris Lopez, and Autumn Schultz placed among the 90 highest-scoring ninth graders.
More than 65,000 high school students from 48 states entered the meet.
The texts for this WordWright Challenge were a poem by Robert Frost for the 9th and 10th graders and a pair of poems by Dave Smith and William Carlos Williams for the 11th and 12th graders.
