The English-Speaking Union National Shakespeare Competition requires students to read, analyze, perform and recite Shakespearean monologues and sonnets in three qualifying stages: at the school, community and national levels. The competition begins in classrooms nationwide, culminating in school-wide competitions where students memorize and perform a monologue. The school competition winner advances to an ESU Branch Competition where students perform their monologue and a Shakespeare sonnet. The community winner advances to the National Competition held in New York City on April 23, where he/she will compete for cash prizes and the opportunity to attend a summer drama program. Approximately 2,500 teachers and 20,000 students in nearly 60 ESU Branch communities participate each year.
