Nixa High School Bulletin for Thursday, November 26, 2015
Poetry Out Loud! There is a new club forming at Nixa High School- Join Poetry Out Loud! Poetry Out Loud is a national high school poetry recitation contest where students compete on a school level, then winners can move onto regionals, state and then the national contest. Poetry Out Loud is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. State winners receive $200 and an all-expense paid trip to Washington DC with the national winner taking home the $20,000 grand prize. Note: Poetry Out Loud is about reading, celebrating and memorizing famous poems, not writing your own poems. If you want a chance to win $20,000, come check out Poetry Out Loud. The first club meeting will be Wednesday, Dec 2nd in Ms. Tarrant’s room, 319. Come join us at either 7am or 2:35.
