On Jan. 31, four Valley Stream Central High School District students participated in the Regional Poetry Out Loud Recitation Contest at Nassau Community College, competing against 11 other students from Nassau County schools. Emily Monfort (Central) won runner-up in the competition and will participate in the state recitation contest on March 7 at FIT in Manhattan. Uwakmfon-abasi Ebong (Central), Ruth Ogbemudia (North), and Victoria Salisan (Memorial) also participated. We are so proud of all the Valley Stream students who performed their poems, and congratulations to Emily who is moving on to the next level!
