SHARE YOUR STORY! The Anthropology Museum at Cal State San Bernardino is preparing an exhibition that will highlight everyday stories of childhood, and YOU are invited to contribute.
The exhibition will feature objects that community members have saved from their youth – personal mementos that have sentimental value and help to tell stories of whimsy, change, tragedy, triumph, and personal growth. Your object and story will be woven together with others’ to collectively consider what memory is, the process of remembering, and why “things” hold a special place in our hearts.
Participant Criteria: Participants must be connected to San Bernardino County or the broader Inland Empire -- as past or present students, employees, residents, etc.
Requirements of Participation:
- An interview about one object saved from childhood that has sentimental value to you
- Your interview can take place at the university, over the phone, or via email
- We also ask that you lend your object to us for display in the Museum, along with your story
- Your treasure will be kept secure, handled to Museum standards, and insured while in our care (approximately March 2016-April 2017)
- You will have the chance to preview your story before it is displayed, and you will be invited to attend the exhibition opening
Sample Interview Questions
- In selecting an object for your interview, we ask that you review these questions to ensure that your story matches the needs of the present project:
- What is the object that you have selected to share with us?
- Can you describe the object you’ve chosen? (what it is, its provenience, when and how you acquired it, and what sort of role or roles it had in your childhood)
- Does this object remind you of anyone? Please describe the person, your relationship to the person, and why he or she is important to you.
- Can you share a few child memories you have about this item?
- Does it remind you of any particular moments in your childhood? (what happened and who was there)
- Are there any identifying marks on the object that came through use or wear that you can tell us about?
- Describe how seeing this object – or, possibly, holding or using it – makes you feel.
- Describe how the meaning of this object has changed for you over time (if it has).
- Why do you think you’ve held onto it for so long?
- Does this object remind you of any personal qualities or personality traits that you had when you were younger, or how these qualities and traits developed over time?
- If not already addressed, what does this object mean to you and why did you select to talk about it?
Timeline: Interviews will be conducted in February and March 2016. Please contact us NOW to make your contribution!Subscribe Plan

About Poetry Out Loud
If you are interested in participating in the official Poetry Out Loud Contest, please contact your
state arts agency.
The National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation have partnered with U.S. state arts agencies to support Poetry Out Loud, a contest that encourages the nation's youth to learn about great poetry through memorization and recitation. This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage.
After successful pilot programs in Washington, DC, and Chicago, Poetry Out Loud was launched in high schools nationwide in the spring of 2006 and has grown to involve millions of students across the country.
Contest Structure and Awards
Poetry Out Loud uses a pyramid structure that starts at the classroom level. Winners advance to a school-wide competition, then to a regional and/or state competition, and ultimately to the National Finals.
Each winner at the state level receives $200 and an all-expenses-paid trip with an adult chaperone to Washington to compete for the national championship. The state winner's school receives a $500 stipend for the purchase of poetry books. The first runner-up in each state receives $100, with $200 for his or her school library. A total of $50,000 in awards and school stipends is awarded annually at the National Finals.
Awards are made in the form of lump sum cash payouts, reportable to the IRS. Tax liabilities are the sole responsibility of the winners and their families.
Program Materials and Schedule
Poetry Out Loud curriculum materials include the online poetry anthology, a comprehensive teacher’s guide, videos of student performances, lesson plans, and promotional and media guides. Hard copies of materials are free for teachers participating in the official program.
While teachers, students, and poetry lovers everywhere can use this website and its free materials to organize their own contests, the official contest is limited to the programs run by each state's arts agency. If you are interested in participating in the official program, please contact your state arts agency.
Materials are sent to high schools beginning in August, and the program is run through early winter. (Poetry Out Loud does not require full class periods and can be completed in 2-3 weeks.) States hold their competitions by mid-March. Following the state finals, the National Finals will be held in Washington, DC, May 2-4, 2016.
The National Endowment for the Arts was established by Congress in 1965 as an independent agency of the federal government. To date, the NEA has awarded more than $5 billion to support artistic excellence, creativity, and innovation for the benefit of individuals and communities. The NEA extends its work through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector.
The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine, is an independent literary organization committed to a vigorous presence for poetry in our culture. It has embarked on an ambitious plan to bring the best poetry before the largest possible audiences.
THE STATE FINALS DATES HAVE MOVED UP!!
Due to venue scheduling issues, we have had to move the dates for State Finals Competition in Sacramento: February 28th and 29th
This means that we have to move up our deadline date for County Competitions. Immediately following your County Competitions, PLEASE do everything possible to have your competition and all finalists' paper work submitted before February 7th. This includes three poem selections and photo /video release information. We will be on a very short timeline to create State Finals materials, plan the event and to make sure that finalists and their chaperones have travel arranged.
The 2015-16 CA POL Teacher and School Registration Form is now live! We've simplified it based on your feedback from last year.
As a reminder, this form should be completed once by the designated Lead Teacher for each school, and after consultation with County Coordinators to determine the best School Finals Competition date.
Completion of this form is required for participation in the official Poetry Out Loud program, and must be submitted by the end of December 2015.
