School Contests

If a student wants to participate in one of our competitions, they must first recite at a local school contest: 

First, at the classroom level, each student recites one poem. 

Then at the school level, classroom winners recite two poems 

School champions in grades 6-8 can move on to compete at the Junior Online Finals, and school champions in grades 9-12 can compete at the Senior Online Qualifiers.  

A school's best reciters can also compete and win prizes at a local Team Regional.
