DULUTH - Marshall School held its second-annual Poetry Out Loud competition Wednesday night.
Every Marshall High School student memorized and recited poems, and then finalists were chosen.
Some students were nervous, some were excited and some were a little bit of both.
“I’m nervous, but I think it’ll be a lot of fun,” said Mary Swain, a sophomore.
“It’s a great way for students to really appreciate poetry ... to get it inside of you so you can share it and bring it out,” said David Johnson, the english teacher in charge of the competition.
