Sophomore Brett Palmer finished the 2020 Poetry Out Loud season as a Northern Maine Regional Finalist.  He competed against students from 16 other high schools at Hampden Academy, where his superb recitations moved him on to the third and final round. This excellent performance meant Brett finished in the top 20 of over 10,000 students who competed in the State of Maine.
