Poetry Out Loud is a national poetry recitation competition and educational program for high school students that is entirely free of charge. POL encourages students to learn about great poetry through memorization and performance, which helps them master public speaking skills, build self-confidence and learn about our literary heritage. Students also have the opportunity to compete for a free trip to Washington DC and over $50,000 in scholarships and prizes. Visit the Poetry Out Loud website to learn more.
