KO Students Win Science-Themed Poetry Contest

Two Keystone Oaks students won a poetry contest sponsored by the American Chemical Society.

It could be said that there's poetry in science, and two Keystone Oaks High School students seem to have proved that hypothesis.

Jess Truong won first place and Kevin Le won second place in a poetry contest sponsored by the Pittsburgh section of the American Chemical Society for 2012 National Chemistry Week.

The theme of the poetry contest was “Nanotechnology: The Smallest BIG Idea in Science!” Winners were chosen from four grade categories, ranging from kindergarten through grade 12.

Poems could be written in any style, and were judged based on relevance to the theme, creativity and artwork. First-place winners received $50, and second-place winners received $25.

As a first-place winner, Truong's poem was entered in the national poetry contest sponsored by the ACS’s Office of Community Activities and Committee on Community Activities. National contest winners will be announced later in November.
