• Poetry Out Loud

    2021 Alaska Poetry Out Loud registration is open for schools and individuals! Deadline for registration: January 29, 2021.

    2021 is the 15th anniversary of Poetry Out Loud, and we hope you will join us! Rather than being a simple exercise in memorization, learning to recite poetry encompasses college and career-ready skills, including structural analysis, interpretation of meaning, point of view, close-reading and the use of higher order thinking skills.

    District Competition
