Sacramento County Poetry Out Loud Recitation Contest

The Sacramento County Poetry Out Loud Competition encourages high school students to learn about great poetry through memorization, performance, and competition. The program provides students with the opportunity to perform poetry in English classes.

Modeled after the National Spelling Bee, the national Poetry Out Loud program began in local high school classrooms, with winners advancing to school-wide, then regional competition. Schools across the country participate in regional competitions.
