1nd Prize – Haiku Poem by Maria Szamrej
7th grade

As in a Soft Breeze
Notes Like Gentle Petals Fly,
Gliding through the Sky.

2st Prize – Amelia Grace Armstrong
1st grade

Listening to Chopin’s
Waltz No. 1 in D flat major

I see a stampede of mice
racing on tiptoe
up the cupboard
across the counter
to the glorious sugar bowl
where they lick the crystals
to make a tiara
for the Queen.

The Queen places it on her head,
but later, in her mousy castle,
while the other mice lick their paws,
the Queen gobbles her crown
in one bite.
Yum. Delicious!

3rd Prize – Nathalie Allen


A genius
Adored by all who heard his music
Born in Poland, marveled by the whole world
His music - forever
