When the Greeks first started the Olympics, they held poetry contests as well as athletic competitions. Now, poetry competitions have been revived (恢复)．This year, 120, 000 high school students competed in the first Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Contest, performing poems from memory for＄100, 000 in prizes. The first competitions were held in classrooms. The winners went on to school-wide contests, and then they competed in city and state competitions. Finally, the 50 state champions, along with the District of Columbia champion came to Washington, D. C. last week for the last showdown. After the 51 champions competed against one another, 12 went
on to the finals. Then the field was narrowed to five. The final five had one last chance to “perform” a poem. The overall champion, Jackson Hille, a high school senior from Ohio, won a＄20, 000 scholarship. The National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation started Poetry Out Loud because they realized that hearing a poem performed is a different experience from reading it on a page. It’s not just a matter of saying the words in the right order. It’s the tone of voice, the pauses, the gestures, and the attitude of the person performing that bring the words to life. “Each time we hear somebody recite a poem, we find something fresh and interesting about it, ” says National Public Radio Broadcaster Scott Simon, master of ceremonies for the finals. Hearing it in a new voice offers something new to the listener. Not only do the people hearing poems have a new experience, memorizing and presenting poems helps the participants (选手) understand those poems in a new way. Another benefit of a competition such as Poetry Out Loud is that the participants learn public-speaking skills that can help them for life. 1. From the first paragraph，we can know _________ . A. the Greeks were the first to write poems B. the Olympics used to start with poem reciting C. poems were spread orally in the past D. athletes were asked to recite poems before competing
2. How many rounds of competitions did the champions take before they went to Washington，D. C. ? A. Three. B. Four C. Five. D. Six.

One benefit the participants get from poem recitation competitions is that they can _______ . A. become skilled in speaking in public B. write good poems themselves C. change their attitudes towards life D. make friends with many great poets 5. What’s the main idea of the passage? A.

Poetry competitions fresh us up. 6. 用 30 个左右的词概括文章大意 ____________________________________________________________
