Tops in Poetry Contest
Wisdom Lane Middle School sixth-grade student Muskan Kumar was a grand champion winner in the 31st annual Walt Whitman Student Poetry Contest, sponsored by the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association. Caleigh Bradley and Jack Pendergrass were also winners in their category among this year's 2,700 entries.
Participants were instructed to write a poem based on Whitman's poem themed "I Dream'd in a Dream." Muskan's winning entry depicted his dream for a new peaceful world.
Muskan was invited to read his winning entry during the Walt Whitman Birthday Celebration, held on June 4 at the Walt Whitman Birthplace in Huntington, New York.
The Levittown School District congratulates the students on this outstanding accomplishment.
