Congratulations to the Fair Poet Finalists for grades 6-8 and for grades 9-12. Every school year since 2016, the students here at Fairport Harding have participated in the Fair Poet contest, created by one of Fairport Harding’s Alumni Mr. Hank Werronen from the Class of 1961. Students this year wrote on the theme “Under Construction” to go along with the new school building that is “Under Construction” in Fairport Harbor. Every student who was on stage today should be proud of their creative writing skills! The Fairport Harding English department and the literary community panels who helped with the judging process to narrow the poems to the top ten finalists would like to say thank you to all who have participated and were willing to share their written work. The judging this spring was extremely difficult. Well done by all finalists on stage today!
