Wheatley Students Earn Medals at Italian Poetry Contest!

Congratulations to the seven Wheatley medalists of the annual poetry contest sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Italian.  Approximately 250 students from Long Island competed in this annual event held last month. Although typically held in person at SUNY at Old Westbury, this year’s contest was held virtually.
