For 2014 Poetry Out Loud
Online registration for Poetry Out Loud, a national competition for high school students, will be open until Oct. 18.
Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and The Poetry Foundation, Arizona Poetry Out Loud is an Arizona Commission on the Arts program, administered in collaboration with Arizona State University's Young Writers Program and the University of Arizona Poetry Center.
Competition starts with classroom and school-level contests. Winners move on to regional competition and then the state finals vying for an expense-paid trip to the Poetry Out Loud National Finals in Washington, D.C. Each state winner receives $200 and a $500 stipend for his or her school to buy poetry books. There are prizes also for each state runner up.
The national champion will win a $20,000 college scholarship.
