Students at East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School participated in the annual schoolwide Poetry Madness Competition, for which they wrote poems following this year's theme of "empowerment."

After several rounds, the top eight students were selected and invited to read their poems in front of the school during an assembly. The eight finalists were seniors Anjali Baloy, Jiggy Kelly, Osmin Mayorga and Emma Neary, juniors Farha Khan and Gabe Padiernos, sophomore Daniella Pedi and freshman Madeleine Prucha.
