One poem led to many more for Starkville High School sophomore Joy Carino.

As a freshman, Carino said, her English class had a unit on Poetry Out Loud, a national competition in which students must select poems from an online list, memorize them, and recite them in a manner that brings out their true meaning. She said that caught her interest enough that she decided to enter the school’s Poetry Out Loud competition as a sophomore.
