Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. – Sixteen students will recite poetry during the ‘Poetry Out Loud' State Finals in an effort to move on the national championship round.

Students will recite works they have selected from an anthology of more than 650 classic and contemporary poems, and they will be judged on their performances including voice, articulation, evidence of understanding, level of difficulty and accuracy.

The champion receives $200 and an all-expenses paid trip to Washington to compete for the national title, and the champion's school gets $500 for the purchase of poetry books.

The event will be held in Albany at The College of Saint Rose's Saint Joseph Hall Auditorium at 2 p.m.
