Spokane, Wash. -

In November we introduced you to Langston Ward, the outstanding student athlete from Mead High School who holds down a remarkable GPA while playing sports.  Last night in Washington D.C., Ward won the national Poetry Out Loud contest. 

Ward becomes the first person in the history of Washington State to win the award.  It was the second straight year Ward made it to nationals, and this year he brings home the big prize.
