Three Lee’s Summit North High School sophomores won the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival Sonnet Contest, held during May. Jack Gatti won first place, Jillian Jamaleddin won second place and Robin Conrad won third place for their poems.
The students were recognized at a May 13 reception at the Johnson County Library by Matt Rapport, Heart of America Shakespeare director of education. All three students are in Kim England’s Advanced Studies 10 English class. Their sonnets will be published on the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival website later this spring.
