Haunting Prose—Joseph Alamo, a seventh grader at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison, captured the attention of judges with his playful and spooktacular prose and his poem won first place in the Middle School competition. He was awarded a basketful of Halloween treats by his English teacher, Corinna Crafton, before reciting the poem to his peers. Joseph is the son of Joseph and Maria Alamo of Roselle Park. His sister, Katina, is a sophomore at the school. Photo by Michelle H. LePoidevin
