Sponsored in Texas by the Texas Commission on the Arts, this exciting program helps high school students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage as they memorize poems and perform them in competition. The afternoon's event will feature the best students in Texas competing for the opportunity to take part in the national finals.
