Celebrate Poetry with Poetry Out Loud!
Hoboken High School is delighted to be participating in Poetry Out Loud, a nationwide poetry competition. The focus of the competition is on memorization and performance, inspired by the recent resurgence of poetry as an oral art form. English teachers have partnered with the library to introduce the program to students.
The first step involves classroom competitions, followed by a schoolwide competition. The schoolwide winner will compete at the state level and the state winner will go on to compete for the national championship. Good luck to all our students!
