We invite schools serving Grades 9-12 in our 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 arearecite Shakespeare's monologues and sonnets and compete for the chance to win a trip to New York City.
