2015 National Shakespeare Competition

We invite schools serving Grades 9-12 in the Central Texas area to celebrate the Bard's 450th birthday this year by participating in the 2015 ESU National Shakespeare Competition. The Competition provides teachers with a free performance-based program for the study of English Language Arts and Shakespeare that satisfies Common Core State Standards. High school students from the local area recite Shakespeare's monologues and sonnets and compete for the chance to win a trip to New York City.  Learn more on our ESU Austin Shakespeare Competition page.
