Students at Kennedy High School got in touch with their inner poets during the recent school-wide Poetry Out Loud competition. 

The Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Contest encourages students across the country to appreciate poetry through memorization and performance.

Students first competed in their individual English classes, with class winners progressing to the school-wide competition. 

Students recited their poems in front of a panel of judges and were scored based on voice and articulation, dramatic appropriateness, level of complexity, physical presence, overall performance and evidence of understanding.

Olivia Schmidt took home first place, Amanda Aronoff was recognized with second place and Nicole Homburger was awarded third place. Schmidt and Aronoff  will continue in the competition and compete at the Long Island Finals at Stony Brook University on Feb. 3.
