Attention KC Area High School Teachers!
Enter your school in the 2019 Shakespeare Competition!
We invite all schools serving Grades 9-12 in the Kansas City Metro area to participate in the 2019 ESU National Shakespeare Competition.
The National Shakespeare Competition provides teachers across the country with a performance-based program for the study of English Language Arts and Shakespeare. Through the Competition, students develop communication skills and an appreciation of the power of language and literature. The Competition has engaged more than 300,000 young people since its inception in 1983. High school students from the area recite Shakespeare's monologues and sonnets and compete for the chance to win a trip to New York City to compete in the ESU National Semi-Finals at Lincoln Center.
We welcome all returning high schools to our 2019 Competition and especially encourage high schools who want to participate for the first time to join our Shakespeare Competition Kansas City Branch Finals on Sunday, February 24, 2019 at the Plaza Library, 4801 Main St., Kansas City, MO.
