Step lively, poets! We have set the dates for the semifinals and finals for our seventh annual Poetry Out Loud competition at Burlington High School.
Our Semifinals will be on February 4th, 2013 and will last all day
Our finals will be on February 13th and will last approximately 90 minutes.
If you are interested in further information on this competition, please see our informational page here:
In response to some student feedback that we received last year, we have noted the nationality for all of the poets on POL (as of June 2012), in order to determine eligibility for the junior and senior classes.
We updated the returning semifinalists and Hall of Fame pages
We have updated the list of in-house banned poems (poems that made the top three last year) to discourage the contest from rolling out the same poems year after year in the finals. For information on this list, see the “House Rules” section.
That’s all for now – Good Luck!
