Ten DuBois Area High School students competed in the local Poetry Out Loud Competition held in the DAHS auditorium on Wednesday, January 18th.
Poetry Out Loud is a national arts education program that encourages the study of great poetry by offering free educational materials and a dynamic recitation competition for high school students across the country. This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about literary history and contemporary life. Poetry Out Loud is a partnership of the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Foundation, and the state and jurisdictional arts agencies.
Awards and placements are determined solely by the judges’ scores based on the Poetry Out Loud Evaluation Criteria. Winners of the local competition advance to a regional and/or state competition, and ultimately to the national finals.
