2013 Poetry Out Loud MA State Finals

by:  Meg O'Brien at 03/13/2013

We are thrilled to introduce you to Courtney Stewart, our 2013 Poetry Out Loud Champion.  This image, captured by David Marshall at the moment his name was announced as Champion, captures the spirit of the program perfectly.

This past Sunday, 23 students from all across Massachusetts met at the Old South Meeting House in the heart of historic Boston to compete for the title of State Champion.  It was one of the toughest competitions we’ve seen in the 8 years of facilitating this program. Every contestant brought such unique power, eloquence, and talent to their recitations, it was difficult to anticipate what the judges would ultimately choose as the winning poet.

A freshman from Springfield Central High School, Courtney performed three poems with such grace and power, he was quickly a favorite among many, as was evident by many conversations overheard during the break regarding which student might win the coveted prize.

His selections:


Courtney will travel, all expenses paid, to Washington DC at the end of April to compete at the National Competition.  I personally cannot wait to support him in this next leg of the journey, and look forward to watching him represent the Huntington, his school, and our state at the competition.

Courtney is only the second male contestant to win the Massachusetts Championship.  Vinh Hua from Boston Latin School took home the title in 2006, the first year of POL.   Stay tuned for more information on the National Finals, and follow along in Courtney’s journey!
