Students Shine in the Italian Poetry Contest!

Congratulations to the six 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 earlier this month.

For the contest, students must select a published poem (in Italian) and recite it by memory. They are evaluated on their performance, poise, pronunciation and interpretation of the selected poem.
