Lily Grace Riddle to Represent Mater Dei Prep at Poetry Out Loud Competition


We are extremely proud to have junior Lily Grace Riddle represent us at the 2021 Poetry Out Loud Regional competition! Poetry Out Loud (POL) is a national poetry recitation program for students in grades 9-12, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. Lily Grace was chosen as the winner of the school competition, and now proceeds to the NJ Region 3 event, which encompasses Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean counties. Best of luck!

Additionally, congratulations to Hunter Thomas-Burgos '21, Erin Fitzgerald '23, Colin Sullivan '21, and Samantha Yannarelli '23 for placing as runners-up in the in-school competition from a field of over 30 students!
