Poetry Out Loud – Regional Competition for High School Students Coming to Hannibal

The Hannibal Arts Council will host the 9th annual Northeast Missouri Poetry Out Loud Regional Competition, a regional poetry recitation competition for area high school students at 10:00 a.m. on February 11 at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S. Main St. The public is invited to attend. The winner of the February 11 regional competition will proceed to the state finals in Jefferson City on March 13. The winner of the state finals moves on to Washington, D.C. for the national finals.


Students participating this year include Mason Haddock (Louisiana High School), Elva Moreno (Milan High School), T.J. Perry (North Shelby High School), Brittany Schafer (Palmyra High School), Kyle Hipkins (South Shelby High School) and Ali Walker (Troy-Buchanan High School). Prior to the regional competition, the six Northeast Missouri schools that elected to participate in the program held school competitions to choose who represents them at the regional competition.

Poetry Out Loud Regional Recitation Competition is a collaboration of the National Endowment for the Arts, Poetry Foundation, Missouri Arts Council, Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Missouri Association of Community Arts Agencies and the Hannibal Arts Council.
