By Paige Nash

Bienville Parish Schools participated in the Regional Literary Rally on Saturday, February 4 at Northwestern State University. Every school in the parish had at least one student who qualified for the State Rally to be held on March 4 this year at the LSU campus in Baton Rouge.  

Students in 7-12 grades, from both public and private schools are eligible to compete. Each District Rally offers 46 Literary Events, including Agriculture, Business, English, Fine Arts, Foreign Languages, Health, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. They rally also offers a wide range of open events.  

Assistant Principal and Counselor Chekelah Weaver said, “This is my first year here at Gibsland-Coleman full time. The rally is something I did while I was at Arcadia, so I wanted to start doing it over here, as well. With this being the students first year to participate a lot of them were not too confident, but of the 19 we brought with us, 8 qualified.”
