Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Contest

The Tennessee Arts Commission, in partnership with Humanities Tennessee, is proud to present Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Contest. This program seeks to foster the next generation of literary readers by capitalizing on the latest trends in poetry recitation and performance building on the resurgence of poetry as an oral art form. Available to all high school students in Tennessee, this is an exciting opportunity for educators to incorporate poetry analysis and recitation in the classroom. Poetry Out Loud is administered by the Tennessee Arts Commission.
