Erie Arts and Culture Presents Poetry Out Loud

Regional Poetry Competition

Three high school students competed in a national recitation contest at the Blasco Library this morning.

 
It's poetry out loud, a regional competition presented by Erie Arts and Culture.
 
The competitors were Tom Palotas of Mercyhurst Prep, Isabel Sepulveda from Meadville Area High School and Mara Weekly of Hickory High School.
 
Four judges evaluated the participants on five different criteria.
 
Erie Arts and Culture Executive Director Amanda Brown Sissem says, "This is a great representation of arts education programming that really is nationwide and we're able to participate in that locally."
 
The regional competition leads into statewide competition in Harrisburg.
