Poetry Out Loud Statewide Semifinals
NOTE: This event was previously scheduled to begin at 5:30 pm, but has been moved to a 6 pm start.
The National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation have partnered with U.S. state arts agencies to support Poetry Out Loud, a contest that encourages the nation’s youth to learn about great poetry through memorization and recitation. This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage. Please join the Holland Project to support these young students in the Poetry Out Loud State Semifinal Competition.
