Event Description:

The student is required to read either: a) a single published poem, b) a collection of published poems by the same writer, or c) a collection of published poems that are somehow thematically related. Even though the student is reading the piece, judges will be looking for how the student interprets it dramatically in terms of their vocal and facial expressions, and the use of their body language and hand gestures. Students must remain center stage when reading. The student must also include a brief memorized written introduction with binder closed as part of his or her presentation. Binder for script required. (8 �� x 5� recommended). (Time limit: 5-7 min. with a 30-second grace period)
