Students stand out at Poetry Out Loud
On Tuesday in the Noel Wien Library auditorium, judges listened carefully to district high school students recite great works by poets such as Gertrude Stein, Billy Collins, Cornelius Eady and others as part of the Poetry Out Loud competition.
Poetry Out Loud is an annual event in which students recite poems on stage before judges and a public audience. The competition began 10 years ago with pilot programs in Washington, D.C., and Chicago and now occurs at high schools throughout the nation, with more than 300,000 students participating annually. The event — supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Foundation and U.S. state arts agencies — aims to foster an interest in poetry as an oral art form and to help students master public speaking skills and build self-confidence.
