Overall, Iola snatched four total first place finishes out of seven different categories. Karly McGuffin and Emma Weseloh each  placed first with their performances. McGuffin in the Prose category and Weseloh with Poetry. McGuffin did an emotional piece, reenacting a heroic teacher during the infamous Sandy Hook shooting.”I was able to score a one, one, and a three in the preliminary rounds, with one being the best, and six being the worst. With my scores I was lucky enough to move on to the final round, where I performed in front of three judges, and was able to place 1st,” said McGuffin.
