Fifth graders at Locust Valley Intermediate School won second place in the Anthologies category of the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association’s 26th Annual Poetry Contest.

The students, from Shari Zindman’s class, wrote poems following the theme, “Songs of the Open Road.” Mrs. Zindman has winners in this contest every year and said she is proud of the students for working so hard and being recognized for their efforts.

Congratulations to Mrs. Zindman and all of her student poets!
