Since its initiation in 2005, Poetry Out Loud has grown to reach more than 10,000 schools, 50,000 teachers and 3 million students across America, encouraging students to publicly recite poetry through memorisation and performance.
The program supports students in building self-confidence, mastering public speaking, while learning about contemporary life and literary history. Students compete according to a pyramid structure, beginning at the classroom level and with top competitors progressing to the National Finals.
