EXPLORE YOUR INNER POET – OUT LOUD!
Don’t miss the celebration of the Tenth Anniversary of Nevada Poetry Out Loud this year! High school teachers and students are invited to get involved in Nevada Poetry Out Loud, the dynamic poetry program that is structured similarly to the National Spelling Bee, but focuses on literary heritage through memorization and performance of classic and contemporary poetry.
Registration for the 2015 Nevada Poetry Out Loud competition is open to all Nevada public, private, charter, parochial and alternative schools and home school associations through December 1, 2014. Learn more about 2015 POL Competition.
|THE ARTISTS IN SCHOOLS + COMMUNITIES ROSTER
The Nevada Arts Council’s new 2015–2018 Artists in Schools + Communities Roster (AIS+C) is a combination of the agency’s three existing rosters—the Arts Learning Roster, the Nevada Folk Arts Roster and the Tumblewords Roster—and features a diverse representation of individual artists and ensembles from Nevada and beyond. The AIS+C Roster is designed as an online resource for schools, organizations and communities to broaden and diversify participation in the arts through the engagement of artists in educational and community cultural residencies and programs. Application to the roster closed September 30, 2014. A panel of artists, educators, presenters and community members will review the applications in late winter and the roster artists will be announced in early spring.
