HAMMOND – More than 2,600 high school students from 71 area schools descended on Southeastern Louisiana University last Saturday for the District 8 Literary Rally.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the annual campus-community festival combined academics and a fun atmosphere for the students and their families, alumni and community friends.
Public and private high school students from East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Washington and West Feliciana parishes competed in 46 different academic subjects.
Following the testing, participants were encouraged to visit displays that showcased Southeastern’s diverse academic offerings.
