Through depth of learning, memorization, and performance, the program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage. Poetry Out Loud builds on the spoken word as an art form.

New Hampshire high school students who excel at their love for memorizing and reciting poetry will come together for several semi-final competitions in February, hoping to head to the 2024 NH Poetry Out Loud championship. Four regional competitions will take place and NH state finals will take place on March 15th.
