Hoosier schools sought for Poetry Out Loud

     (AAPNW) – Coordinated by the Indiana Arts Commission, the sixth annual Poetry Out Loud Indiana State Finals competition, IAC encourages high schools to participate in the poetry recitation contest.

     Initial competitions are held at the high school level to determine one student to represent the school in state competition. There are no registration costs for high schools interested in participating in the Indiana Poetry Out Loud competition, and all resource materials will be provided. Preliminary school competitions should be completed by February 1, 2011.

     Schools need to advance register in order to take part in the competition. The competition will be held in late February to determine the Indiana state champion. The winner of the state championship will represent Indiana at the 2010/2011 Poetry Out Loud National Finals in Washington, D.C. in late April. Elise Lockwood from University High School, Carmel, was the 2009/2010 Indiana State Champion.
