Poetry in the Classroom

Poetry In Voice is a recitation contest for high school students in Canada.

The contest begins in the classroom. Top-scoring students, selected from across the country, win a trip with their teachers to the National Finals in the spring. More than $75,000 in travel and prizes are awarded each year.

A student can compete in one of  three contest streams: English, Bilingual, or French:
