Steven Cooper Wins Poetry Out Loud Contest at Newmarket High

Steven Cooper won the 4th Annual Poetry Out Loud Contest at Newmarket High School.  He will represent Newmarket High School at the East Regional Semi-Finals today, March 8, at Southern NH University in Walker Auditorium.  He will be required to recite three different poems from memory.
On February 18th,  14 high school students participated in the recitation contest sponsored in part by the NH State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  All 14 students gave impressive recitations and final scores were very close, says Pam Caswell. 

Steven Cooper is a junior, and he placed first with his recitation of  “Dreamers,” by Siegfried Sassoon.  
A senior, Robert Mantagani, placed second, with his recitation of Whitman's "O Captain! My Captain!”.  

Third place went to freshman Eddie Phimansone, who recited “The Man He Killed,” by Thomas Hardy
