Three students representing Long Island Lutheran Middle & High School recently won high honors in this year’s Wordwright Challenge, a competition for American high school students requiring close reading and analysis of many different kinds of prose and poetry.
In the year’s second meet, held in December, senior Gaurav Ajmera was one of only 44 twelfth graders in the entire country to earn a perfect score. Others at the school who achieved outstanding results in the meet included sophomores Temerlyn Boyle and Regan Lutz. More than 70,000 high school students from 48 states entered the meet. The students’ preparation was overseen by Jennifer Grene.
