Congratulations to Marin finalists Russell Wirth (Tamalpais HS), Clare Brosnan (San Rafael HS), Doug Pardella (Redwood HS), Sophia Ranft (The Marin School), Anna Erice (San Marin HS) and Beatrix Berry (Drake HS).
Come see these young performers in action this Saturday, February 11, at 11 a.m. Each student will recite two poems selected from the Poetry Out Loud anthology. Works presented will range from Shakespeare and Tennyson to Carl Dennis and Jean Valentine.
The highest overall scoring finalist will advance to the California state competition, with the winner at the state level earning an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the national competition.
