Description

Poetry In Voice is a national poetry recitation contest for high school students in Canada. Registration is free and open to all secondary schools across Canada.

Students memorize and recite poems chosen from among the hundreds in our online anthology. They then compete in one of our three prize streams: English, Bilingual, or French. By learning poems by heart, students develop lifelong relationships with poetry while improving their language, public speaking, and memorization skills. 

The contest begins in the classroom. Top-scoring students, selected from across the country, win a trip with their teachers to the National Finals in the spring. A total of more than $75,000 in prizes, trips, and books are awarded each year.
