A Franklin High Schooler is headed to a national competition in poetry reading.
Cole Delaney placed first at the state Poetry Out Loud Team! Competition. Delaney’s teammate Thaddeus Bergschneider placed third.
Delaney will receive $500 for poetry materials for a virtual submission for the semifinals on May 1st. If Delaney advances from that stage, he will be a part of the final competition on June 5th for a chance at a $20,000 scholarship.
This is the second year in a row that Franklin has sent two students on to the state competition in the contest.
