Poetry Out Loud is a poetry recitation competition that encourages middle and high school students to learn about great poetry through memorization and performance. The Idaho Commission on the Arts joins other state arts agencies in partnering with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation to support Poetry Out Loud. Students advance through local competitions to state finals and then to a national competition in Washington, D.C.
