Star Longoria, sophomore at Mason High School, competed at the UIL State Prose Interpretation contest in Austin, Saturday, May 7-8, 2010, placing second. In order to reach the final six round on Saturday, Star had to qualify before a panel of three judges and place in the top three in a preliminary round on Friday. Star was only topped in the state of Texas in 1A classification by one senior from Tolar High School. Her performance in the finals was genuine and thought provoking as she interpreted a non-fiction selection about the Civil Rights movement in 1962. The University Interscholastic League is celebrating its Centennial Year and the medals presented to students commemorate the event. Star stands, draped by her silver medal, for a picture outside LBJ Auditorium on the University of Texas campus where the UIL Academic Meet is held each year.
