Poetry Out Loud

Poetry Out Loud is a national competition of recitation and performance of poetry conducted by the National Endowment for the Arts and its partner agency, including the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

Piscataway High School student Ijeoma Egekeze won the New Jersey Poetry Out Loud competition this past week, beating out five other students in the state finals in Trenton, NJ.

New Jersey Network has a video of the event on its website. The contestants are introduced and perform after all the introductory remarks, so start watching around the 15-minute mark.
