The Arts and Culture Commission of Contra Costa County in partnership with the California Arts Council, National Endowments for the Arts, and Poetry Foundation proudly supports Poetry Out Loud (POL), a national recitation contest open to high school students. Poetry Out Loud generates a love of poetry, helps students master public speaking, and builds self-confidence.
Contra Costa County high school students have been active in Poetry Out Loud since 2008. The program is open to all high schools and organizations in the county that work with grades 9-12 (homeschoolers can also participate).
