Poetry Out Loud is a national contest in which high school students memorize and recite poetry for an audience.  The competition begins on a school-wide level, with winners from each school advancing to the statewide competition.  The winners from each US state and territory then compete at the National Finals in Washington, D.C. each spring. As members of Greenbrier West would like to congratulate the 2018-2019 Poetry Out Loud contest winner Tia Walkup and runner-up Gianna Ortiz and we wish Tia the best of luck as she advances to the statewide competition at the Charleston Culture Center in March.
