CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Poetry lovers are invited to hear 12 student finalists from around the state in New Hampshire’s “Poetry Out Loud” competition.

The students will recite poems compiled by the National Endowment of the Arts and Poetry at the State House on Thursday March 13 at 7 p.m. The winner will represent the state at the national championship in Washington, D.C., where a total of $50,000 in awards and school stipends await the top-placing students.

Virginia Prescott, host of New Hampshire Public Radio-produced “Word of Mouth,” will be master of ceremonies.

This year, nearly 10,000 students from 37 New Hampshire high schools participated. High school champions advanced to regional semi-final competitions and students who placed in top positions at each semi-final will compete at Thursday’s statewide finals.
