Ryan Bellinger, who will be a fifth-grader at Broken Arrow School this fall, was honored in a poetry contest. Bellinger's poem was selected from thousands of entries as one of the top 10 in the fourth-grade division.
The top 10 poets in each division were recognized in the poetry anthology "Celebration of Young Poets." They also received a copy of the anthology and a $50 savings bond. Bellinger is the son of Rick and Laura Bellinger.
The deadline for this year's contest, sponsored by Creative Communication, is Aug. 15.
