Discover Student Passion in Poetry

Matthew Webb

Teachers โ€“ are you looking for a fun way to incorporate poetry and public speaking in your curriculum? Join us for the 2014-15 Poetry Out Loud program. This is a free, national poetry recitation program for high school students. By encouraging youth to learn about poetry through memorization and performance, students can master public speaking skills and build self-confidence. Each school holds its own recitation competition, sending its top student to the state competition for a chance to win cash awards. Michigan's state champion then competes at the national level for an opportunity to win a major college scholarship. Registration is now open โ€“ sign up today to receive your free materials and get started.
