Poetry Out Loud Southern Regional at City Theater in Biddeford

There are 8,500 students taking part in this year’s Maine Poetry Out Loud Competition. These students hail from 45 schools and are supported by 250 teachers. The first of two Maine regional competitions begins at 4:00pm on Thursday, February 10, at the City Theater in Biddeford. The event is free and open for all to attend.

Poetry Out Loud is a program that encourages high school students to learn about great poetry through memorization, performance, and competition. During the early part of the year, schools are invited to participate in classroom and schoolwide contests, advancing to a state competition on March 11. State champions will advance to the National Finals, to take place on April 28-29, 2011, in Washington, DC.

Students from the following schools will be competing in Biddeford tomorrow, where five will be chosen to advance to the state final in March. This competition is always an amazing event and your support is welcome.
