SEVEN SCHOOLS RECITE IN HHS's ANNUAL FOREIGN-LANGUAGE POETRY CONTEST (VIDEO)

About 145 students from seven Upper Valley high schools attended HHS's recent poetry-recitation contest for foreign languages. Winners were chosen in beginner, intermediate and advanced levels by outside judges.

These three videos show students reciting in French, Spanish and Latin. Those who volunteered to recite for the camera came from Kearsarge, Windsor and Hanover. French and Spanish students memorized their poems. Latin reciters read their passages, since Latin classes don't practice conversation as modern languages do.

"Life and Times" apologizes for the delay in finishing this video-report.
