Poetry is a thriving art form that gives youth opportunities to connect with topics close to their emotions. Poetry Out Loud is a national recitation contest for youth in grades 9–12 and a great Youth Development opportunity. This program has abundant opportunities for enrichment classes and community-wide events that can be effectively delivered in-person or online. Rochester Community Education has introduced Poetry Out Loud in their community and has already been successful with a 3rd place state finalist and successful Summer Poetry Event. Through this COMPLETELY FREE program you can access hundreds of poems, promotional materials, student coaching opportunities, and even resources to bring professional poets to your community for writing workshops and/or performances. Come learn more about how your Community Education Department can partner with K–12 staff to reach diverse learners that love to express themselves through the performance of poetry and potentially win substantial scholarship awards. The 2019 national champion was from Northfield, Minnesota. Let’s return Minnesota to the podium!
