Poetry Recitation Contest

Reciting poetry can help enrich the students’, vocabulary as well as improve their pronunciation in English. It also gives them a taste of public speaking and helps develop their confidence.

In this competition, students from 3rd grade to 8th grade have to recite a poem of their choice from a pre-selected list provided by ESU Chile, in front of a panel of judges. These experts in public speaking will evaluate their delivery, focusing on their expression, clarity and interpretation of the poem.

Every year, students from all over the country participate in this competition, learning and sharing with others as well as taking the first step towards public speaking.


Join us at the 2019 Poetry Recitation Contest that will be held on 17th and 18th October at Saint George's College.

For more information about the competition check out the rules and poems in the 2019 Poetry Recitation Contest Handbook.
