Few events bring the country together in the name of poetry like Poetry Out Loud, the national recitation competition for high school students. Join us to view the action of the 2021 Vermont state competition.

Watch Vermont High School students recite poems as part of the national competition. The showcase features a poetry recitation from nearly 20 students who were chosen to represent their school by winning local or classroom competitions. Awards will be announced at the end of the show.

The showcase is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation. It is facilitated locally by the Vermont Arts Council.
