DETROIT (WWJ) – A Detroit Cass Technical High School student is the 2014 Michigan Poetry Out Loud champion.

Matthew Webb of Detroit won the title earlier this month after a daylong recitation competition at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center.

Webb took top honors among 35 student competitors. He recited “The Empty Dance Shoes” by Cornelius Eady in the final round.

Webb now goes on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington to represent Michigan at the National Poetry Out Loud competition next month.
