Poetry In Voice / Les voix de la poésie is recommending recitation contests at all levels be held online this year. Students, check out our Tips for Reciting Online page. Teachers, consult the Run an Online Contest page for tips on holding a contest, and check out our Team Regionals page for opportunities to join an online team contest near you. The Junior Contest will be held online, as it always has been. We hope to hold a live Senior Nationals in Montreal in April, 2021, A final decision will be made closer to the date, but we will definitely hold Nationals, as we did in 2020. Learn about changes to the contest format on the Senior Nationals page. There are more prizes to be won than ever before!
