Due to COVID-19, there are elements of the Poetry Out Loud program that will look a little different this school year. In order to ensure the safety and health of participating students and staff, the 2021 Kansas Poetry Out Loud program and the Poetry Out Loud National Finals will be held virtually.  At this time, the dates for the virtual 2021 National Finals are still to be determined, but will take place in the Spring as a video submission-based competition.

The following links and documents explain the Kansas Poetry Out Loud format for 2021.
