Poetry Out Loud

by The 100 Companies

Megan Ammons, a senior at Harding Academy of Memphis, is on her way to the Nation’s capital after winning the Tennessee 2023 Poetry Out Loud contest.

“It was a really beautiful thing,” said Ammons of engaging with her pro-poetry peers at an event she called a valuable “learning experience.” Following graduation, she hopes to attend Lipscomb University as a pre-med student.
Last month’s state-wide competition saw 16 finalists from 16 schools take to the stage. Ammons — a student, children’s teacher and dancer — will advance to the semifinal rounds at the National Finals, slated for May 10th in Washington, D.C.
