April 2, 2019

Live Streamed

If you missed the Maine Poetry Out Loud (POL) State Finals that were held on Monday, March 11 you can see the BRTV recording that was live streamed. The state finals opened with the Messalonskee Jazz Band under the direction of music educator Andrew Forster.

Bill Green, who served as the emcee for the state finals, provided a POL segment on his weekend show Bill Green’s Maine News Center. It’s a wonderful summary of the event – VIEW IT HERE. Thank you Bill for doing such a great job!

It includes three Maine high school students, Allan Monga, Deering High School, Portland, the 2018 Maine State Champ and 1st runner-up from 2019, Emma Lombardo, Westbrook High School, a State Finalist for the 2018 and Wyatt Bates, Yarmouth High School, Regional Finalist in 2018 and 2019.  More videos will be created and all of them will be available on the Maine Arts Commission Poetry Out Loud webpage.
