BATH — Morse High School students in the English classes of Johnna and Brian Stanton participated in a poetry slam May 25, in the Curtis Room of the Chocolate Church.

Thirteen students performed original works; after three rounds of competition, three students (all seniors) emerged victorious: Aliza Johnson (third), Emma Hill (second), and Aidan Smart (first).

Patten Free Library provided the prizes for the winning poets; each received a Gift of Bath certificate.
