The 2013 Poetry Out Loud National Finals will take place April 28-30 in Washington, DC.
Granville will have the opportunity to represent ZHS and Louisiana at the event where she will compete to earn a scholarship award.
Poetry Out Loud seeks to foster the next generation of literary readers by building on the resurgence of poetry as an oral art form, as seen in the slam poetry movement and the popularity of rap music among youth.
Through Poetry Out Loud, students can master public speaking skills, build self-confidence and learn about their literary heritage.
Granville also participates in the district’s Talented Theatre program.
