Glendale student claims top poetry prize

by The 100 Companies

Last month, Biruni Hariadi recited her way to the top at the Arizona Poetry Out Loud State Finals in Tucson. The student at Gary K. Herberger Young Scholars Academy competed against peers from all corners of the state and emerged the Arizona 2023 Champion.

The competition, administered by the University of Arizona Poetry Center, began in the classroom and advanced through multiple levels; next month, Hariadi travels to the nation’s capital to compete against champions from all 56 states and U.S. jurisdictions for a chance to win the title of Poetry Out Loud National Champion – plus a $20,000 scholarship.
