Each year, as part of National Poetry Month, the Guilford Poets Guild sponsors the Guilford High School Poetry Contest. This year’s winners, selected from more than 70 entries, were (from left to right) Lauren Mitzelfelt (third place), Julia Rubbo (Gordy Whiteman Prize), Ella Stanley (Second Place), Christopher H. DeNegre (runner-up), and Shayla Flynn (runner-up). First place winner Meredith Bloss is not pictured.
