And the winner is – Tyler Zolynsky.
Riverview Community High School recently announced Tyler Zolynsky as the winner of the RCHS Poetry Out Loud contest.
Poetry Out Loud is a national arts education program that encourages the study of great poetry by offering free educational materials and a dynamic recitation competition for high school students across the country.
This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about literary history and contemporary life. Poetry Out Loud is a partnership of the National Endowment for the Arts, Poetry Foundation, and the state and jurisdictional arts agencies.
Since 2005, Poetry Out Loud has grown to reach more than 4 million students and 65,000 teachers from 16,000 schools in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa
In January more than 200 sophomore students participated in the RCHS Poetry Out Loud school contest. At RCHS, students recited works they selected from an anthology of more than 1,100 poems.
