Montague Regional High School student Berry Genge has been selected as a national finalist to the Poetry In Voice national poetry reciting competition. Poetry In Voice/Les voix de la poésie is a charitable organization that encourages Canadian students to fall in love with poetry through reading, recitation, and writing. Students may compete in their recitation contests in English, in French, or bilingually.
Poetry In Voice was founded in 2010 by Scott Griffin, Chairman and founder of The Griffin Trust For Excellence In Poetry and is used in over 1,000 schools.
Montague’s streak of 6 straight years sending a student to nationals is one of only a few schools across the country who can claim this special honour.
In their recitation contests, students choose classic and contemporary poems from the Poetry In Voice anthology, learn them deeply, commit them to memory, hone their recitation skills, and compete for prizes.
