Jessica Kariisa Finalist in Poetry Out Loud 2012

In March, we blogged about Raleigh Charter School student Jessica Kariisa, the winner of the North Carolina Poetry Out Loud competition. Well, she made the finals at the National Endowment for the Arts’ national Poetry Out Loud competition, along with only eight other contestants in Washington DC.

Photos are up on the web. Jessica is in the sub-group Poetry Out Loud 2012 Semifinals Session 1 (first photo is 121) and Poetry Out Loud Finals 2012.
