Poetry Out Loud

 

Poetry Out Loud is a national arts education program that encourages the study of great poetry by offering educational materials and a dynamic recitation competition to high schools across the country.

South Orange Performing Arts Center is one of five regional host sites for the New Jersey regional competition serving as the Region 5 host for Essex and Union Counties.

Participating high school teachers use a toolkit to teach poetry recitation and run classroom competitions.  Students select, memorize, and recite poems from an anthology of more than 700 classic and contemporary poems.  Beginning at the classroom level, winners will advance to the school wide competition, then to the state competition, and ultimately to the National Finals in Washington, DC.

Poetry Out Loud is a partnership of the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Foundation and the state arts agency, NJ State Council on the Arts.  In New Jersey, support for the program is also provided by Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey and the ArtPride New Jersey Foundation.
