Poetry Out Loud in Iowa is an arts education program that encourages high school students to study great poetry and compete in a recitation competition at local, state and national levels. Students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence and learn about their literary heritage.

It was created by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation with the collaboration of state arts agencies in all 50 states and U.S. territories.
