            CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Capital High School student Jordyn Marshall will represent West Virginia at the Poetry Out Loud: National Recitation Contest in Washington, D.C. on April 24-25.

Marshall won the state competition hosted by the West Virginia Division of Culture and History (WVDCH) and the West Virginia Commission on the Arts on Saturday, March 10, at the Culture Center, State Capitol Complex in Charleston. Abbey Delk of Wheeling Park High School was the runner-up.

            Marshall recited I Sit and Sew by Alice Moore Dunbar-Nelson, Hip-Hop Ghazal by Patricia Smith and On Monsieur's Departure by Queen Elizabeth I.

            Delk’s poems included ['Often rebuked, yet always back returning'] by Emily Bronte, Enough by Suzanne Buffam and The Hospital Window by James L. Dickey.

            Forty students from high schools in 26 counties competed in the semifinals on Friday, March 9, 2018, with the top 10 contestants competing Saturday in the state final. A complete list of semifinalists and their schools is attached. Top 10 finalists and Top 5 finalists also are noted.

            Marshall received $200 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the national finals. Capital High School received a $500 stipend to buy poetry books and materials. Her teacher is Courtney Anastasio.

            As the runner-up, Delk received $100 and $200 for her school to purchase poetry books and materials. Her teacher is Gail Adams.

            West Virginia artist Matt Thomas of Gilmer County was commissioned to create the championship award and a companion trophy, which will be on display at Capital High School.

            Poetry Out Loud is a poetry recitation contest sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry Magazine, the oldest English-language monthly publication dedicated to verse. The program is designed to encourage high school students to learn about great poetry through memorization, performance and competition.
