Poetry Out Loud
Poetry Out Loud is a national contest that encourages students to learn about great poetry, build their public speaking skills, and grow their self-confidence through the recitation of memorized poems. Our 9th – 12th grade students compete at the classroom level with two students from each grade progressing to the Upper School competition. The school winner represents Villa Victoria Academy at the Regional competition for the chance to progress to the New Jersey and National competitions. $50,000 in scholarships are awarded each year to Poetry Out Loud winners.
