How do we help young people enjoy poetry? One answer is Poetry Out Loud (POL), a national recitation contest open to high school students. Poetry Out Loud generates a love of poetry, helps students master public speaking and builds self-confidence.
The County Finals competition will be held 11:00 a.m., this Saturday, February 6, 2016 at Los Lomas High School Theatre, 1460 South Main in Walnut Creek.
You will hear great poetry recited by the best high school finalists as they compete to be this year’s County Winner.
This free event is presented by the Arts & Cultural Commission of Contra Costa County (AC5).
The State Finals will be held in Sacramento on February 28 and 29, 2016.
