Sacred Heart juniors Leo Darling and Kevin Fehrm take high honors in WordWright Challenge
More than 70,000 high school students from across 48 states entered the meet, during which they were challenged with analyzing texts that range from short story to poetry and by authors contemporary or from the far past. The premise of the WordWright Challenge is that attentive reading and sensitivity to language are among the most important skills students acquire academically.
Questions posed by the WordWright Challenge ask students to both recognize the emotional and/or rational logic of a piece of writing and to observe the ways in which a writer's style shapes and shades meaning.
"Congratulations to Leo and Kevin for their outstanding performance in the WordWright Challenge," said Sacred Heart High School Principal Dr. Michael Gill, extending thanks to English teacher Winifred Dick who oversaw Sacred Heart's participation in the event.
