Welcome to New Jersey Poetry Out Loud!

Poetry Out Loud, a free national program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, encourages high school students across the country to learn about great works of classic and contemporary poetry through memorization and recitation. Not only do they share their interpretation and delivery of poetry; they also vie for awards and scholarships totaling $50,000.

Regional contests are underway!

If your student has won a regional contest, please click below to register for state finals:
