Students who participate in the Poetry Out Loud competition can win prizes and college scholarships

Does your school participate in the Poetry Out Loud contest? If not, make this the year you do!

The National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation have partnered with U.S. state arts agencies to support Poetry Out Loud, a contest that encourages the nation’s youth to learn about great poetry through memorization and recitation.

This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage. Excellent prizes and scholarships! Each school sends one winner to the state contest.
