The annual high school poetry competition is a celebration of poetry and the spoken word. Students choose a poem, memorize it and present it to their class. Students are judged on their recitation based on a common rubric. The top two students from each English class compete in the semi-finals to narrow the field to two students per grade level for the finals
presented in the auditorium. In addition to the in-class competition, students in 10th grade created videos using meaningful imagery to accompany their recitation. Students were encouraged to use images licensed for re-use and required to cite their sources. Creating the video provided an opportunity to practice and engage with their poems before presenting to the class. Congratulations to all students and teachers who participate in this exciting event.
