“The display of skill in poem selection and interpretation, pacing, enunciation, and stage presence resonated in front of a demanding panel of skilled judges…” – Grapevine Newspaper 2016
The Levoy Theatre is proud to continue to be the platform upon which regional youth display their talents. The New Jersey Poetry Out Loud competition is 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.
If you are a school group or organization interested in participating in the 2018 NJPOL competition, more information will be available later this year. Stay tuned for an update!
