Congratulations to Angel Vargas, who became our 2016 Poetry Out Loud Champion with his compelling recitations of Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Spanglish by Tato Laviera. Angel will now represent Burlington in the statewide semifinals in Framingham on Sunday, March 6. He will compete against 15-19 other students, 6 of whom will move on to the state finals, which will take place in Boston on March 13.
This year’s competition was incredibly close, and we also wish to congratulate all of our finalists for their excellent work.
