15 third-graders from Wildcat Mountain Elementary School in Highlands Ranch can now call themselves published poets. Their poems are featured as part of the 2017 Young American Poetry Digest, which is compiled by the National Schools Project. The organization's purpose is to get students excited about writing and to provide an audience for student poetry.  A panel of educators reviews the poetry submitted and selects poems to be published based on a list of literary criteria.

Congratulations to the following students: Reese Beiser, Karoe Chang, Evan Diebold, Chloe Epperson, Sami Finney, Christopher Harmon, Roey Hastings, Sophia Jeske, Brodie Lyle, Aanya Naik, Emmy Rosenmeyer, Riley Smith, Nicolas Stuart, Kieran Sullivan, and Maya Witkiewicz.
