Nine students from across Canada came out on top at the 2020 Poetry In Voice national poetry recitation competition, collectively winning $25,000 in prizes.

As a result of COVID-19, this year's national finals, hosted by former CBC Radio personality Johanne Blais, took place online.

In past years, the participants would recite their chosen poems in front of a live audience. This year's 24 semifinalists from high schools and cégeps filmed their recitations.
