This week, BOA Publisher Peter Conners served as a judge for the regional Poetry Out Loud competition held at SUNY Brockport. The competition winners were Demetria Hale of The Harley School and Nichola Metzger of Brighton High School. They were awarded with BOA books and advanced to the state finals, to take place March 9 in Syracuse, New York. The Poetry Out Loud program encourages and enables the nation's youth to learn about great poetry through memorization and recitation. BOA gives three cheers for all of these brave and talented teens and applauds their love of poetry!
