Register Your School for Arizona Poetry Out Loud
Deadline: January 30, 2017
The school registration deadline for 2017 Poetry Out Loud has been extended! A national recitation contest created by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, Poetry Out Loud invites the dynamic aspects of slam poetry, spoken word and theater into the English class. Through Poetry Out Loud, students can master public speaking skills, build self-confidence and learn about their literary heritage all while competing for scholarship prizes!
Since 2005, Poetry Out Loud has grown to reach more than 3 million students and 50,000 teachers from 10,000 schools in every state. Once registered, each participating teacher/school site receives a toolkit, which includes a program guide to help teach recitation and performance and a DVD and companion guide for learning recitation-free of charge.*
