Mendocino County Student Events
The Mendocino County Office of Education (MCOE) sponsors and coordinates a number of countywide events for students. These academic events are designed to encourage and promote student learning as well as recognize students for their accomplishments.

Poets in the Schools
Poet teachers visit students in grades 7-12 to assist them in creating their own poetry as well as discovering poetry created by other poets. An anthology of student poetry is collected and printed annually. In 2011-12, students contributed poems for the anthology, Wave Upon Wave which has been published and distributed to the students.
The Coast and Countywide Poetry Slams take place during the school year: Contact Blake More, 707-884-9189 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Mendocino County Poetry Out Loud
Mendocino County Poetry Out Loud is a collaborative effort of the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Council, and the California Poets in the Schools. Poetry Out Loud encourages high school students to memorize and perform poems.
"Learning great poetry by heart develops the mind and imagination, " said Dana Gioia, former Chairman for the National Endowment for the Arts. "It isn't just an arts program. By immersing themselves in powerful language and ideas, the students will develop their ability to speak well, especially in public. This is a skill they will use in the workplace and the community for the rest of their lives." Poetry Out Loud helps students master public speaking skills, builds self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage.
