Poetry Out Loud (POL) in Iowa is an arts education program that encourages 9th-12th grade students to study great poetry and compete in a recitation competition at local, state, and national levels. Students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage.

It was created by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation with the collaboration of state arts agencies in all 50 states and U.S. territories. This year, the program and competitions are taking place virtually. 

Registration deadline for the semi-final is January 27, 2021.

See the event website for deadlines, dates for competition levels, and other details.
