Madeline Miles, a senior at Chaminade Julienne High School, won the 24th Annual Paul Laurence Dunbar Poetry Contest for high school poetry and will receive recognition and a $100 award in a May ceremony.
According to Miles, her entry “The Monarchy” is about where the world of childhood imagination can take its young travelers and a unique perspective of ruling the world.
