Welcome to New Jersey Poetry Out Loud!

Poetry Out Loud, a free national program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, encourages high school students across the country to learn about great works of classic and contemporary poetry through memorization and recitation. Not only do they share their interpretation and delivery of poetry; they also vie for awards and scholarships totaling $50,000.

Congratulations to the New Jersey Poetry Out Loud State Champ, Breana Sena, and Runner-Up, Maya Vuchic!

Join us to cheer Breana on to victory on Tuesday, April 24, 2018!
