Poetry Out Loud State Finals
Old South Meeting House, Boston
POETRY OUT LOUD encourages students in grades 9-12 to memorize and perform real poems and to explore the dynamic aspects of slam poetry, spoken work, and theatre in their English and Drama classes. Winners from the state-wide semi-finals move on to the State Finals Competition on Sunday, March 9 at Boston's historic Old South Meeting House, and the Massachusetts State Champion will advance to the National Competition in Washington, DC.
