The Art of Foreign Language

Spanish language students from the High School participated in this year’s Spanish Poetry Contest at Hofstra University, a competition in which they displayed and shared their works with students from across Long Island.

The Sigma Delta Pi Spanish Poetry Contest has provided high school students with a forum to culturally expand their minds and gain recognition for their achievements in Spanish for the past forty years. Inspired by their Spanish curriculum, students crafted poetry that included cultural, historical and geographic literary elements.

Deer Park student Liza Chowdury’s standout writing took second place in the original poetry category, along with the submissions of students Henry Aguinada, Hashim Gray, Jonathan Hurtado-Salinas, Stephanie Lopez, Ismaldo Matias, Ada Ramirez and Nicholas Ruiz.
