SUNY Cobleskill is pleased to announce that we will host this year’s Poetry Out Loud competition for the Capital Region of New York State! Come witness as students from local high schools in the region recite poetry and engage with the Cobleskill Campus Community.

Join us Monday, February 10th at 6pm in  Bouck Hall Auditorium.

We are excited to participate in this event and consider Poetry Out Loud to be a valuable and enriching experience and an important part of SUNY’s system wide Vibrant Communities and K-12 initiatives. Poetry Out Loud is a national recitation contest for high school students, created by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation and administered in partnership with the State Arts Agencies of all 50 states. In New York, Poetry Out Loud is managed by Teachers & Writers Collaborative on behalf of the New York State Council on the Arts. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Poetry Out Loud State Finals will be held at SUNY System Administration in Albany on Tuesday, March 4, 2014.
