Shakespeare Competition begins at 10:00 a.m.

In this program, high school students nationwide read, analyze, perform, and recite Shakespeare monologues and sonnets in as many as three qualifying stages: school, community (ESU Branch) and national levels. This national effort involves 15,000 students and over 1500 teachers who encourage their students to increase their self-confidence and develop critical skills as they come alive through Shakespeare's timeless works. Our winners get a chance to compete in New York City and then on to compete for the opportunity to study acting in England.
