Shaylee Beck, a sophomore at the Central York High School, is this year's Poetry Out Loud Winner. Shaylee is now moving on to the regional Poetry Out Loud competition where she will be competing against several other students in York and Adams County. Shaylee's 3 poems that she is reciting are "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" by Kevin Young, "My Partner Wants Me to Write Them a Poem about Sheryl Crow" by Kayleb Rae Candrilli, and "Love's Philosophy" by Percy Bysshe Shelley.
Poetry Out Loud encourages students to learn about great poetry through memorization and recitation. Good luck to Shaylee, as she advances to the regional competition in March.
