Poetry Out Loud Regional Finals Begin Wednesday

The Maine Arts Commission is proud to be working with our friends at MPBN this year to present Poetry Out Loud. This poetry recitation competition begins with around 9,000 students competing in Maine’s high schools and ends with the selection of one student who represents Maine in the national final in Washington DC.

We are now down to 44 finalists representing Maine schools statewide. To find 10 students to compete in a live televised state final we begin the first of two regional finals Wednesday, February 8 at 4:00 pm at the City Theatre in Biddeford. This event is free to attend. Show up and cheer on your favorite southern high school.
