Poetry Out Loud: National Recitation Contest

2006-2007 Participating South Carolina High Schools

Forty-five high schools in 22 South Carolina counties participated in the 2006-2007 "Poetry Out Loud: National Recitation Contest," a program offered by SC Arts Commission in partnership with the National Endowment of the Arts.


Students in these schools are now memorizing and reciting their favorite poems and will soon begin classroom and school-wide competitions. Finalists will advance to the state competition in March. The state champion will receive $200, a $500 stipend for the purchase of poetry books for their school library, and an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., to compete in the NEA's Poetry Out Loud National Finals in April. A runner up will also receive $100 and their library will receive a $200 poetry book stipend.
