Poetry Recitation Contest

​Bienvenue! Willkommen! Salvete! ¡Bienvenidos!

The Foreign Language Poetry Recitation Contest (PRC), held annually in early December, gathers language students in each of our four languages — French, German, Latin, and Spanish — and from a wide range of high schools to recite poems in their target language before a panel of judges and an audience of peers and teachers. Bringing to this contest their sharp wits, these competitors impress us year after year with their level of preparation and flair for the "stage." They aren't merely speaking these verses; they are performing them.

This year the PRC will take place on Tuesday, December 10th, with the snow date on Thursday, December 12th. Students will "sign in" during the 8:15-8:45 a.m. block and make their way to their assigned rooms for a 9:00 start. Throughout the morning, refreshments will be available in designated areas. The event will culminate in the HHS Auditorium around 11:30 a.m. for the announcement of our winners.

Using the online registration form or a downloadable version that can be mailed back to us, please let us know by Friday, November 16th, how many of your students will participate in each language and and at which levels. For more information or to register over the phone, please call 603-643-3431 x 2701 (11am-2pm) or x2607 (8am-11am) or email. We very much look forward to seeing you and your students in December.
