Event Details

Welcome to the 12th annual Poetry Out Loud competition!

Poetry Out Loud encourages high school students to learn about poetry through memorization, performance, and competition.  This year, Colorado Creative Industries partners with Lighthouse Writers Workshop to promote the event statewide, while the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation serve as national sponsors.  Schools are invited to participate in classroom and school-wide contests, advancing to a state competition on March 3, 2017. The state champion will compete in the National Finals on April 25-26, 2017 in Washington, DC.  

Please register your school to compete in the Colorado State Final competition for POL using this website.  The registration deadline for schools is February 1, 2017.  Please note:  you will register your school champion to compete in the State Finals on a separate registration website.  

Thank you!
