Event Details

Poetry Out Loud is a contest that encourages the nation's youth to learn about poetry through memorization and recitation. This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage. Hosted by Free, of WPGC 95.5, the District of Columbia Finals will feature 10 students from across the city competing for $50,000 in scholarships by reciting great works of poetry. The winner will represent D.C. in the Poetry Out Loud National Finals in April.

 

Come early to check out the exhibition Poetic Likeness: Modern American Poets with "Ask Me" guides in the museum.


The Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Contest is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and Poetry Foundation. The Poetic Likeness exhibition have been made possible through the generosity of the Abraham and Virginia Weiss Charitable Trust, Amy and Marc Meadows, and Catherine V. Dawson.
