Betsy Layne High School sophomore Brianna Bradford is the school winner for the 3rd annual Betsy Layne High School Poetry Out Loud Competition. Bradford will advance to state competition in Frankfort on March 13, 2018. The competition was made possible through a grant from the Kentucky Arts Council, for which language arts teacher Patricia Hackworth had applied. Only 20 schools in Kentucky are selected to participate in the competition. The competition consists of dramatic readings of poems from the Poetry Out Loud website. Students are judged on accuracy and performance. Bradford will recite three poems at the state competition.
