Similar to a spelling bee, this national recitation contest begins in high school classrooms and school champions advance to countywide competitions.

On February 9, winners from twelve high schools in San Luis Obispo County compete before a panel of judges for a $500 scholarship -- and a spot in the statewide Poetry Out Loud Competition held in Sacramento in March. The state winner advances to the national competition in Washington D.C. in April.

The Poetry Out Loud, a program created by the National Endowment for the Arts with cooperation from the Poetry Foundation, State and Local Arts Agencies, is a national recitation contest for high school students. This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence and learn about their literary heritage.

More information about the county program can be found at http://artsobispo.org/arts-in-education/poetry-out-loud or email pam@artsobispo.org.
