dlr Libraries Recite Now Poetry Competition Final

Thursday 24th March at 10.00am


dlr Libraries, in association with dlr Poetry Now, presents Recite Now, a poetry recitation competition for primary schools, for the second year.

The competition is designed to introduce younger children to the delights of poetry and poetry speaking, with the added bonus of building confidence and self-esteem.

There are two age categories: the Senior Category is for fifth and sixth classes and the Junior Category is for third and fourth classes. Each participant will recite 2 poems in each
round, one prescribed poem and one chosen by the student or teacher from a list of recommended anthologies.

The heats and semi-final will take place in Deansgrange Library, and the final will take place in the Pavilion Theatre on Thursday 24th March as part of the dlr Poetry Now Festival.
Information brochures have been sent to all the primary schools in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
