If you don’t know already, I am in the eleventh grade and I am required to enter the National Recitation Contest: Poetry Out Loud. First students have to compete with classes and from each class we will choose a winner from each class. Then those winners within the school will compete with the other students within the school, next the school winner will compete against other schools within the region, and then the nation. The national winner will receive prize money.
I picked the poem I Carry Your Heart With Me ( I Carry It In). I’m so excited to start competing on Jan 13th 2011. WISH ME LUCK! 😀
