Poetry Out Loud: Bringing the Written Word to Life
Poetry Out Loud, an annual poetry recitation competition presented by the Arts Council, demonstrates the power of integrating art into public school education. This national program offers an imaginative and effective way to engage young people with great works of poetry, build
self-confidence, and impart transferable skills.
More than five thousand students have taken part in high school competitions over the past several months. On March 7, thirty-one schools will be represented in the Vermont Poetry Out Loud Semifinals at the Barre Opera House.
We invite you to join us for this event in person or by tuning in to the live stream.
