Poetry Out Loud

Poetry Out Loud, a nation-wide program for high school students, strives to revive the age-old practice of poetry contests, (part of the ancient Olympics), while harnessing some recent energy around poetry slams. But unlike slams, it asks that students choose one or two from an established anthology of about 700 great poems, and then memorize them. Our county has the largest number of students and schools participating in the state. See them on Saturday day.
