Registration is under way for the Nevada’s 2020 Poetry Out Loud competition and high school teachers and students throughout the state are invited to get involved.
Registration is open to all high school aged Nevada public, private, charter, parochial and alternative schools and home school associations. Structured similarly to the National Spelling Bee, Poetry Out Loud is focused on literary heritage through memorization and performance of classic and contemporary works.
The Poetry Out Loud state champion earns $200, wins $500 for his or her school to support literary programs, and travels to Washington, D.C., to compete for $100,000 in scholarships and school prizes at the national finals.
Teachers are invited to find out more about 2020 Nevada Poetry Out Loud and to register to participate by Dec. 2 by contacting Maryjane Dorofachuk at (702) 486-3738 or mdorofachuk@NevadaCulture.org
