3.      POETRY IN VOICE WILD CARD:  Do you love poetry?  The English Department’s 6th annual Poetry in Voice competition will be held on February 14.  If your English class is not officially participating, you still can get involved by entering the Wild Card round, held after school on February 7. Simply go to the Poetry in Voice website (, choose a poem, memorize it, and recite your interpretation. The winners selected from the Wild Card will be eligible to compete in the school competition.  The winner of the school final has a chance to enter the national competition and win $5000. This opportunity is open to any students in grades 9 to 12. If you’d like to sign up or have any questions, please see Ms. Poon in Room 315.

NOTE:  Please be aware that if you win a Wild Card spot, you will be required to memorize two poems for the school competition.                                                                                               M. Poon (14)
