A recent poetry competition held in Barre VT was a huge success. Held at the Barre Opera House last Wednesday, March 13th, high school students from all over Vermont took part in the “Poetry Out Loud” contest. The winner won $200 and an all-expense paid trip to Washington to represent Vermont at the national finals.
This year was the 8th year for the “Poetry Out Loud” contest which continues to grow in popularity. Created from a collaborative effort by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, the idea behind the contest is to emphasize poetry as an oral art. Here in Central Vermont and across the state the competition has created an interest in classic poetry and inspired the often lost art of recitation.
Students in Barre last Wednesday represented 38 high schools in Vermont, with the winner coming from St. Johnsbury Academy. The event was well attended and inspiring. This is a wonderful example of how Vermont High Schools nurture both creativity and a passion for the classics.
