Eight students stepped on stage to deliver their literary interpretations at the fifth Kid’s Oral Interpretation Fair at Jefferson School on Saturday.

Students from Jefferson and Delta Charter Home School competed at four grade levels, reciting published literary works or excerpts they had memorized before a panel of judges. 

The winning oral interpretations were:

Fifth and sixth grades

• Lily Andish — First place for “The Secret of the Old Clock” by Carolyn Keene.

• Carly Abercrombie — Second place for “What Was I Scared of?” by Dr. Seuss.

• Krishna Panjwani — Third place for “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly” by Lucille Colandro.

Seventh and eighth grades

• Cera Burns — First place for “A Dream within a Dream” by Edgar Allen Poe.

• Maya Panjwani — Second place for “Fairest” by Chanda Hahn.

• Lucus Childree — Third place for “The 5th Wave” by Rick Yancey.

In the new duos category, Caitlynne McNamara and Maya Panjwani recited “Dooby Dooby Moo” by Doreen Cronin and Cera Burns and Lucas Childree performed “Interrupting Chicken” by David Ezra Stein. Winners were not named in the duos because it was the first year.
