MADISON (WKOW) -- A Kenosha fifth-grader will be honored this week after her poem won a national contest for Black History Month.
A Kenosha News report says Marissa Callaway will be recognized at Tuesday's meeting of the Kenosha Unified School Board.
Callaway's poem, "Black," beat out thousands of others in the Top Ten Poems for the Spring Creative Communications Poetry Contest in the U.S. and Canada. She won in the category for kids in fourth through sixth grade.
Marissa says she wrote the poem to illustrate "how so many things are black and how they could be perfect and beautiful."
