Attention KC Area High School Teachers!
Enter your school in the 2018 Shakespeare Competition!
We invite all schools serving Grades 9-12 in the Kansas City Metro area to participate in the 2018 ESU National Shakespeare Competition.
The Competition provides teachers with a performance-based program for the study of English Language Arts and Shakespeare that satisfies Common Core State Standards. 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.
We welcome all returning high schools to our 2018 Competition and especially encourage high schools who want to participate for the first time to join our Shakespeare Competition Branch Finals on February 25, 2018.
