The New Rochelle Fund for Educational Excellence proudly presents the 25th annual Poetry Out Loud, sponsored by our Jeremy Scheinfeld Publishing Center.

We were so excited to host 80 students reading original poetry in the Whitney Young Auditorium at New Rochelle High School on May 14, 2023. Westchester Country Youth Poet Laureate Harmony Hopwood kicked off the ceremony, which was hosted by Mayor Noam Bramson.

Congratulations to each young poet for being selected to participate -- thank you for sharing your poems with us!

We are grateful for the support of our wonderful principals and teachers, and our dedicated Poetry Out Loud coordinators.
