Photos from the Poetry Out Loud Minnesota state finals, 8 March 2010. I didn't take any photos during the actual recitations, but I took a few before it began and a bunch during the awards ceremony. The fact that Thomas came 3rd probably had something to do with that :-).
Big thanks to Dave Johnson, drama coach at Morris Area High School, for all his help and support. Also big thanks to Athena Kildegaard and Ray Schultz for invaluable advice and ideas as Thomas prepared for this year's event!
Tish Jones was an excellent MC at this year's event - thanks!
