Poetry Out Loud

Poetry Out Loud Competition

The Orange County Department of Education and California Arts Council is partnering with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foudation to support a wonderful event for high school students called Poetry Out Loud (POL). POL is a contest that encourages students to memorize and recite different genres of timeless poetry. The program is intended to help students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about literacy heritage.
Congratulations Alexis!
