The English -Speaking Union National Shakespeare Competition was held February 6th after school at the High School. Our winner is senior, Katherine Quinn and our alternate is junior, Emma Sarnacki. Katherine will go on to compete at the Regional Level on March 9th at Russell Sage in Troy.

The English-Speaking Union National Shakespeare Competition provides teachers across the country with a performance-based program for the study of English Language Arts and Shakespeare. It is a school-based program serving Grades 9-12. Through the Competition, students develop communication skills and an appreciation of the power of language and literature. The Competition has engaged more than 250,000 young people since its inception in 1983.

Students read, analyze, perform and recite Shakespearean monologues and sonnets in three qualifying stages: at the school, community and national levels. Approximately 2,000 teachers and 15,000 students in nearly 60 ESU Branch communities participate each year.

Mrs. Carol White, High School English Teacher facilitated the competition. Congratulations to our winners and to all who participated.
