Poetry Out Loud


It's that time again!

Poetry Out Loud is the national poetry recitation contest held every year at South Atlanta. Students must select a poem from the list of authors at poetryoutloud.org. We'll hold a school competition on January 23rd during lunch. One winner will go on to the regional competition in February and be on their way to winning $50,000 in scholarship money, not to mention being able to state they were their school's winner on college applications.

Students must select 1 poem of 25 lines or fewer and 1 poem written before the 20th century. If you need a recitation coach ask Mrs. Miles for recommendations.

More information can be found in the library.
