On April 24, students of Eisenhower High School participated in a poetry slam. The event, which featured the theme of "Life Doesn't Have a Rewind," was held in the school library which was transformed into a cafe, complete with a juice bar coordinated by SADD and baked goods sold by student volunteers. The jazz band and orchestra performed, including several talented soloists. Unique art was displayed and judged. The winner of the art contest was senior Erik Daugharthy. For the poetry portion of the event, eighth graders displayed their poetry books and high schoolers participated in the poetry slam competition, which was judged by a variety of judges from all over Pennsylvania. Sophomore Josh Haight won first place in the poetry contest with his poem "A High Speed Collision." Overall, it was a great celebration of the arts.
