BHS Poetry Out Loud Finals Live on BCAT

By: Rich Hosford

Burlington High School is holding its annual Poetry Out Loud finals on Tuesday and you can watch them live right here on BCAT. 

In the competition each student must recite to poems from memory and are graded on a variety of points, including voice and articulation, physical presence, dramatic appropriateness and evidence they understand the poem’s meaning. 

It is a fun event to watch and Burlington students always do a great job with their selected poems. 

The finals will run from 10 to 11:15 a.m. on Tuesday and you can watch from home, or work, here on BCAT. If school is cancelled on Tuesday the finals will take place at the same time on Thursday.
