New Hampshire Level III winner of the 2016 Letters About Literature competition, Kaitlyn Grant (R), is shown with English teacher, Mrs. Joy McCauley (L) at Somersworth High School and Career Technical Center. Kaitlyn received notification of the award along with a check for $100.00 from the New Hampshire Center for the Book. Ms. Grant’s letter was selected from hundreds of letters from the state. Kaitlyn was one of a group of five talented semi-finalists from Somersworth High School and Career Technical Center, according to Mrs. McCauley.

Ann Hoey, a Level III (grades 9-12) NH judge, said that Kaitlyn’s letter to Neil Hilborn “captures both her struggles as well as her connection to the spoken poem. The writer’s voice is honest, and she offers concrete examples of how the poem moved and inspired her.”

Kaitlyn’s letter has been sent to the national 2016 Letters About Literature competition to represent the Granite State. National winners are soon to be announced by The Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. You can look for Kaitlyn Grant’s letter on the website here.

The renovation is underway!
