Students have passion for Poetry Out Loud

By Madison Wray, Staff Writer

Students interested in poetry can compete in the annual Poetry Out Loud recitation contest. Students prepare two poems to recite before a panel of Fairmont teachers. One winner will be a representative for Fairmont and compete at the state level in March with other students from Ohio for a chance to perform in Washington D.C. and win prizes, which include a $20,000 college scholarship. A meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 24 in Room 130 after school. For additional information see Penni Meyer in Room 218 or Darren McGarvey in Room 130.
