Students from Poetry Out Loud's Alabama Region 2 came to Pebble Hill today for a pre-state practice workshop with Lindsay Doukopoulos, instructor in the Department of English. Students from across the state will compete on February 17--the winner will head to Washington D.C. to compete in the 2014 Poetry Out Loud National Finals.

Poetry Out Loud is a contest that encourages the nation's youth to learn about great poetry through memorization and recitation. This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage. Alabama Poetry Out Loud is supported by the Alabama State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation.
