Poetry Out Loud Regional Finals Held at Hannibal Arts Council

Six Northeast Missouri schools participated in the Northeast Missouri Poetry Out Loud Regional Finals held February 12 at the Hannibal Arts Council. 

Students participating were Beth Thordsden (Palmyra), Miranda Oder (Milan), Ashley Bichsel (North Shelby), Maryssa Movarac (Louisiana), Victoria Carothers (South Shelby) and Ali Walker (Troy-Buchanan).  All six participants recited three poems each for the judges.  Judges scored each recitation on physical presence, voice and articulation, appropriateness of dramatization, level of difficulty, evidence of understanding and overall performance.
