More than 50 students from West Feliciana High School competed in over 30 categories in Louisiana’s Southeast District Literary Rally on March 5 at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond.

Louisiana students in seventh through 12th grades, from both public and private schools, are eligible to compete in one of 10 district rallies at state colleges or universities.

Each district rally offers 44 literary events in the categories of agriculture, business, English, foreign language, family and consumer sciences, math/computer science, science and social studies.

“We have the best teachers, and the district literary rally results proved this,” said Jennifer Jacob, an English and speech teacher at West Feliciana High. “All of the students represented West Fel well, and we are proud of their behavior at the rally and their effort on the tests.”
